American Muslims currently experience the fastest growing rate of religious discrimination in the United States. This growth is paralleled by scrutiny of Islamic law (Shari’ah), Islamic practices and lifestyle.
What does Shari’ah mean for American Muslims, and what does it have to do with religious freedom?
What do these questions mean for Christian and Jewish communities in the United States?
On July 16th, join a town hall discussion on American Muslims, Shari’ah and religious freedom. During the event, four expert leaders from the country’s three largest faith traditions will speak and take questions from audience members. Participants will be encouraged to ask candid questions about Islam in the US.
