How do we confront today’s intolerance?

Film screening and discussion: An American Mosque

Event date April 13, 2016 7 - 9pm

Newly built mosque in northern California, victim of a hate crime in 1994

Join us on Wednesday, April 13, for a screening of the documentary An American Mosque and a discussion with the award-winning filmmaker, David Washburn. In 1994 a newly built mosque in a rural community in California was destroyed in an arson attack. It was subsequently rebuilt with the support of members of a diverse group of faiths and communities. In An American Mosque, members of these communities share their stories — speaking passionately about hard work and anticipation, heartbreak and fear, triumph and hope. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker.

Room 6-120
Refreshments will be served
