Overcoming Islamophobia 

October 10, 2017

All are invited to join Aneelah Afzali (MAPS-AMEN) and Pastor Terry Kyllo (Neighbors in Faith) for an overview of the Islamophobia industry, the threat it poses to our nation and civil liberties. Learn what we can do together at 10 am, Wednesday, October 18, in Hildebrand Hall.

Each year the Islamophobia industry spends over $30 million dollars to make Americans afraid of Muslims and Islam. Websites, YouTube videos, books, white papers and media turn the hearts and minds of people against one another, paving the way for a more divided, fearful future. 

We don’t have to live in that future. Together we can build one based on our shared values and vision for America.

Faith organizations can play a key role in sharing accurate information about Islam and Muslims, creating relationships between different faith communities and participating in the beloved community for which we all long.

Faith leaders from all churches, mosques, synagogues and temples as well as civic and community leaders are invited. This two-hour event includes time for Q & A and interaction. 

Sponsors include: MAPS-AMEN (American Muslim Empowerment Network), Neighbors in Faith, The Shoulder to Shoulder Campaign, Faith Action Network, Council on American-Islamic Relations WA, Church Council of Greater Seattle, The Episcopal Diocese of Olympia, The Northwest Washington Synod of the ELCA, The Southwestern Washington Synod of the ELCA and the Pacific Northwest Conference of the United Church of Christ.

For more information, please contact Terry Kyllo at 360.770.2774 or email Terry@Neighborsinfaith.org.
