“Although Prepare New York is an interfaith coalition, the work we are doing is for the city, is for the country,” says Dr. Hussein Rashid of the Quest Center for Spiritual Inquiry. “So we want to do is reach people where they feel comfortable, not where we feel comfortable.”
Join us on Wednesday, June 29th, for a riveting discussion about Islamophobia and Anti-Semitism with Ari Gordon, Assistant Director of Interreligious Affairs at the American Jewish Committee, and Hussein Rashid, Educator and Consultant on Interreligious Affairs. Please see here for more details.
Hussein is an academic, activist and lecturer. He has an extensive background in theology, interfaith dialogue and political consulting. So we thought he would be the perfect person to talk to about the role of Religion in Politics today!
