Friends and Allies Workshop
February 2 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm
Sponsored by the Muslim Solidarity Task Force of the Minneapolis Area Synod, our speakers will include Muslim youth, Lutheran pastors, and representatives from the Islamic Resource Group, the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations, and Augsburg University’s Campus Ministry department. You will learn about the experience of Muslims in Minnesota today, the powerful Islamophobia industry, and hear stories of hope and inspiration. We’ll have ample time for conversation and meeting new friends while enjoying a delicious lunch catered by Afro Deli. This is a “Next Steps” workshop, so if you haven’t yet had a chance to learn about the basics of Islam, we encourage you before the workshop to check out Lutheran Social Service’s My Neighbor is Muslim, available as a free download at lssmn.org. A youth version is also available. For more information contact Rev. Craig Pederson at the Synod office, 612-230-3316.
