Interfaith clean energy initiative

Friday, November 14th 12:30PM

Rise Above Islamophobia - November 15, 2018 - in partnership with UMR and the Diversity Council of Rochester

This is an interfaith effort to promote the use of clean energy! Community Interfaith dialogue on Islam (CIDI), Masjid AbuBakr Al-Seddiq (MAAS), and Tom Williamson of Rochester Faith & Solar Coalition will be distributing *FREE* LED bulbs at the mosque on 17 N. Broadway to congregants as they leave the Friday payer. The purpose of this effort is to help community members save money on monthly utility costs and gain understanding of the environmental and monetary mpacts of using clean energy sources.

These bulbs are meant for those who pay their own electric utility but cannot afford to purchase the bulbs.

The bulbs will be distributed from the adjacent mosque library (right of main entrance). This initiative is open to the entire Rochester community, regardless of faith or spiritual affiliation.

Dr. Jonathan Brown (Georgetown University and author of Misquoting Muhammad) presents Shariah Explained on May 30th, 2015 at the Rochester Public Library.  The event was organized by Islamic Resource Group (IRG) and CIDI.
