Community Interfaith Dialogue on  Islam
                              ​                                                     Serving Rochester, MN                           


Join us at the Rochester Public Library auditorium for an evening of learning about Islam, meeting neighbors, and sharing your tradition! Too often those who hate Islam and Muslims are the ones telling the story. We are telling our own stories and sharing our own narratives! Come and get to know more about your Muslim neighbor and share something about yourself!
In light of anti-Islam talks occurring on the same day as this event outside of Rochester, we offer this event as a peaceful and educational way of combating fear and hate.
Regina Mustafa, Naima Yusuf, and other speakers will offer information on the basics of Islam and shed light on the common misconceptions.
Regina Mustafa is also a certified speaker with the Islamic Resource Group (IRG) of Minnesota.
