Building Community and Unity
AEP PARTICIPATED IN AN INSPIRING RURAL VIRGINIA RETREAT that gathered people from eleven organizations across the U.S. Leaders discussed the struggle with Islamophobia, civility, and extremism where challenges are multifaceted and approaches are complementary. The group reviewed the big picture in the U.S. while building new relationships and strengthening old ties. Discussions included the importance of education, engagement, and interfaith/intercultural dialog. Through resource sharing, the group focused on building community and exploring methods for creating better understanding of cultures and faith traditions.
