Fast Fwd: Short Talks By Muslims Making Big Change

In this 3rd annual Fast Fwd Forum, we focus on the points of light leading the way toward an American Muslim community that is open, compassionate and making progress in projecting the real Islam to the world. We highlight five young professionals who are taking innovative and effective action on long-ignored issues.

Listen to these 10-minute talks that start from “I believe change is possible because…” and connect to telling our stories online, creating racially inclusive Muslim spaces, providing addicts with compassion and care, building authentic relationships between Muslims and Jews and fostering healthy communities.
