You’re invited: Islam awareness, education event is Thursday on campus
The campus and larger communities are invited to an evening program titled “Islam awareness: A conversation about Islam, the Muslim Student Association and inclusivity at UW-Green Bay,” from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday (Oct. 30) at the Mauthe Center on campus. The event is being held to dispel myths, answer questions and educate attendees about Islam, and to provide information about the University’s Muslim Student Association (MSA), which as Log readers may recall was at the center of last week’s well-publicized exchange involving UW-Green Bay alumna Heba Mohammad and Green Bay Alderman Chris Wery. The event will kick off at 6 p.m. with a free first-come, first-served dinner featuring Somali cuisine. The program portion of the event will begin at 6:30, and will include a presentation on dispelling stereotypes about Islam, a panel discussion, an informational presentation about the MSA, and distribution of information about Stop the Hate programming on campus.
