Honest Conversations with Muslim Neighbors

Who are our Muslim neighbors ? What do they believe ?
How do extremist actions worldwide affect them ?

CCIU - CT Council for Interreligous Understanding(representing 9 religious traditions), the Muslim Coalition of Connecticut, & Hartford Seminary are co-sponsoring an ongoing series of conversations, to inform the public about the American-Muslim experience and to discuss some of the concerns raised by the broader American public since 9/11.

Our next “Conversation” will be
Monday evening, April 9 at 6:30pm
Avon Free Public Library
281 Country Club Road, Avon
hosted as part of National Library Week -
a follow-up to the library's "Freedom of Religion" program

A panel of Connecticut Muslims
will informally share some of their experiences
and respond to our questions such as:
Why don’t we hear moderate Muslims
speaking out against extremism ?
Why do some girls and women wear Muslim dress
and others do not ?
What does the Qur’an really say about Christians, Jews
and members of other faiths ?

American Muslims don’t have all the answers,
but our guests will respond out of their own experiences,
raising issues that concern them as well as us.

Together, in conversation,
we can promote a more peaceful world for everyone.

ALL are welcome ~ Join us for this important event
in the interfaith life of Connecticut, & bring a friend !

Our timely, thought-provoking series
of "Honest Conversations with Muslim Neighbors"
continues ... join us for this one, and watch for more !
