As Muslims, it is important to be a part of our larger community living in the United States. We need to know our neighbors, school district board, local politicians, and other civil servants who impact us, our families, and communities on a daily basis.
This panel workshop is intended to highlight members within the Muslim community that serve in their local areas through library committees, planning commissions, interfaith groups, and other key civic areas. These presenters are good examples of how Muslims can be involved and be engaged in civic society to create good influence, model Muslim behavior, and exemplify how the shape of the community we live in matters to all of us.
