Emory Presbyterian Church and Refugee Women’s Network are co-hosting a Community Conversation – Dispelling the Myths: Islam, Refugees and Women. The event is designed as a forum to address common misconceptions about our refugee population and Islam and to promote a better understanding of the needs of refugees seeking to assimilate to their new country.
The event will feature Edward Mitchell, Executive Director of the Georgia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, CAIR. As America’s largest Muslim civil rights organization, CAIR engages in interfaith dialogue, counters Islamophobia, and builds coalitions to promote justice and understanding.
Refugee Women’s Network, RWN, is a 501c3 organization serving refugees resettled in the state of Georgia. RWN inspires and equips refugee women to become leaders in their homes, businesses and communities. For more than 20 years the organization has continued to be the only organization in Georgia that specifically serves refugee women.
The public is warmly welcomed to join in this Community Conversation on March 26th in the sanctuary of Emory Presbyterian Church.
