"All Muslims aren't terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslim." - "The Quran is inherently violent." - "Sharia law is coming to take over our country." - "We need to keep out Muslims to stop terrorism." Too many of us have heard these and similar statements not just in the media, but from friends, co-workers, or even family members.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR, www.cair.com) is hosting this workshop, which will examine some of the most common misconceptions about Islam and Muslims, and work with participants to develop concrete strategies for responding to them using research-based messaging. The goal is to be able to counter this negative messaging on the local and human level, and to change hearts and minds about Islam. This workshop is open to both Muslims and allies, with people of all backgrounds extremely welcome!
WHEN: Saturday, April 7, 2018, from 2-4 p.m.
WHERE: Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (100 Malcolm X Blvd, Roxbury, MA 02120)
