Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati Invites You to Attend an Important Unity Open House

 

June 9, 2017 – West Chester, OH – Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati Invites You to Attend an Important Unity Open House on Saturday, June 10 at 1:00 pm, at 8092 Plantation Drive in West Chester, Ohio.

This upcoming Saturday, like many Saturdays for years, we are holding a “Know your Neighbor” open house to welcome all members of the community into our mosque. We hold these events because diversity and mutual understanding between people of all faiths, races, and ages forms the foundation of a strong community.

Unfortunately, a small group of very extreme people have decided to protest our open house this Saturday as part of a nationally coordinated campaign to stigmatize American Muslims this Ramadan.

So we are redoubling our efforts to welcome all people to share part of their Saturday afternoon with us to show unity, strength and a belief in the American principle of religious freedom.

Will you join us this Saturday to send a clear message that there is no room for bigotry here in Cincinnati?

RSVP to toursandtalks@cincinnatiislamiccenter.org with your name and number of attendees.

Please note that this is not a counter-protest and we do not intend to engage with the protesters at all. This is a peaceful coming together of people of all backgrounds who share our commitment to diversity and inclusion.
