Opportunity for Young People to Learn About Islam

The World Affairs Council is hosting a Youth Summit on Saturday, Oct, 8th, 3:00 - 8:00, called "Beyond Islam: Understanding Muslims in Our Communities and Beyond".  It's at the Old Redmond Schoolhouse Community Center in Redmond.  It's free.  If you are interested in attending or know someone who is, please contact the organizers by email at globalclassroom@world-affairs.org with student name, school name, and grade of each participant.

The event is organized by the World Affairs Council Global Classroom Youth Leadership Program.  For more information, please contact the Global Classroom, globalclassroom@world-affairs.org.

It's a good chance to learn more about Muslims at home and abroad and meet other open-minded and interested young people.  Participants will have an opportunity to views parts of stories of American Muslims and hear about the history of Muslims in America.  It ends with joining together with local Muslim communities for the traditional dinner which follows the breaking of the fast for Ramadan.

For four days prior to the conference, from Oct. 3-7th, the Collections & Stories of American Muslims exhibit will be on display at the Seattle Vocational Institure at 2120 Jackson St. in Seattle.
