A Teach-in & Solidarity with the Boston Muslim community

GBIO’s next “Out of Many, One”: Teach-In and Solidarity with the Boston Muslim Community will be hosted by Temple Isaiah (55 Lincoln St., Lexington) on Tuesday, July 25 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm.

Join together with our Muslim neighbors from the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center and other Greater Boston Interfaith Organization leaders for an evening of learning, relationship-building and solidarity. This is an opportunity to learn more about the Muslim faith and to hear stories from individuals of their experiences being Muslim in Boston. We’ll also learn about specific threats facing the Muslim community in these troubling times and about what we can do to be of support.
