Learn how to interact with Muslims in America to ensure comfort and to convey solidarity. This dynamic diversity training will provide the insight and resources necessary to be an ally.  At the end of the training, we will continue to build trust and understanding with a potluck. Bring the food you love and share it with the fellow Muslim Allies after the training.

Union Project and Food Truck© have partnered to present this Muslim Ally Training. Now more than ever, we need to learn to alleviate misconceptions that revolve around the Islamic faith and culture today. This event will be facilitated by Wasi Mohamed, the Executive Director from Islamic Center of Pittsburgh with dialogues including:

  • Learn about Muslim cultural norms
  • Learn about the religious practices that make up a Muslim’s lifestyle
  • Alleviating misconceptions about Muslim culture and lifestyle
  • Go through a list of ways that one can show solidarity to Muslims within the Greater Pittsburgh area together. We encourage everyone to transform open dialogue into action.

Union Project's partner for the Muslim Ally Training is Food Truck©, an initiative created by Nancy Lewandowski and Maritza Mosquera. Food Truck©'s goal is to build community through food, art, and conversation.

This event is sponsored by 100 Days of US.
