Practical Guide to Engaging Others on Islam

“Whether we speak to large audiences or just to our colleagues and friends about Islam, we all need to know the best methods to do so. This session will share principles for discussing Islam effectively with others in one-on-one as well as large group settings.”

Grassroots ING Events Across the East Coast This Fall

ING will be hosting a series of grassroots events on the East coast this fall to update communities on its important work. The theme that will be highlighted at all events is Grassroots, Local Strategies for Countering Islamophobia & Bullying of Muslim Children.

According to polls, up to 80% of Muslim children are bullied in schools, are least likely among religious groups to see themselves as thriving, and feel less respected and more stressed and worried than other children. ING founder Maha Elgenaidi will be joined by ING trustees to discuss this challenge and the larger issue of what this means for the future of Islam in America.
