Please join us via Zoom for an important conversation with Imam Makram El-Amin of Masjid An-Nur in Minneapolis, and Chaplain Nisa Muhammad ’17, Assistant Dean of Religious Life at Howard University and President of the Association of Muslim Chaplains.
The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Bilal Ansari, Co-Director of the Islamic Chaplaincy Program, Hartford Seminary.
Imam El-Amin and Chaplain Muhammad will share their experiences following the traumatic death of George Floyd and the support of those they serve.
Imam Makram El-Amin has led a fast-growing, culturally diverse congregation in his hometown to the forefront of interfaith dialogue and neighborhood outreach. A 2014 Bush Fellowship recipient, he imagines a new narrative of Muslim life and leadership, one that has at its core a vision for social change and justice.
As the Assistant Dean for Religious Life at Howard University, Chaplain Nisa Muhammad is responsible for religious programming that serves the various needs of the campus, advocates for the religious needs of a diverse student population, teaches non-academic personal enrichment classes on the Islamic tradition and works closely as part of the staff in the Office of the Dean of the Chapel where the guiding principles are Faith, Service and Justice.
A Zoom link will be sent to those who register in advance of the webinar.
