April Webinar: Maslaha - A New Language for Understanding Islam Today

Some of the greatest integration challenges occur during the essential transactions of everyday life: a visit to the doctor, a meeting at your child’s school or paying a bill in a bank. Established by the Young Foundation and a featured Good Idea by Cities of Migration, the Maslaha project provides practical information to help the Islamic community navigate cultural issues to do with healthcare, education, family life, finance, and civic and democratic engagement.
