Meet a Muslim

You are invited to join us and meet a Muslim, someone who likely lives in your own community. These conversations have allowed many of your neighbors to participate in an open dialogue; sharing honest questions and thoughts, receiving equally honest answers about Islam and the everyday life of a Muslim.
Please bring an open mind and your questions; nothing is off limits.

With Moina Shaiq, a Muslim resident of Fremont for 33 years, mother of four and active member of the community.

BANding Against Islamophobia

We would like to give everyone an opportunity to ask questions and discuss what’s on their mind following President Trump’s immigrant ban. Learn about the impact on our Muslim communities, how we can survive this political climate through unity, agree to disagree, and embrace our differences. It’ll be worth your time.

Join us for an open, safe, and much needed evening among your fellow residents. Bring family and friends, ask questions, and connect with each other on a personal level.

Free forum, light snacks and beverages will be provided. Limited seating.
