American Muslims: Islam 102

February 15, 2017 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Stafford Room, Alameda Free Library,
1550 Oak Street, Alameda 94501

 The program offers presentations from invited panelists including Muslim students, a “Meet a Muslim” program speaker, a Saint Mary’s College Faculty member and representatives of the Islamic Center of Alameda and the Council on American Islamic Relations.

A question and answer session gives participants the chance to delve deeper into the teachings and practice of Islam. Questions such as common misconceptions of American Muslims, cultural interpretations of the role of women in Muslim communities, the meaning of Sharia Law, how Muslim mosques can reach out to local communities and the role that interfaith and other groups can play in promoting post-election healing will be discussed.
