Let’s Be Honest: Tackling Taboos in the American Muslim Community

— A session from MPAC’s 2014 Convention —

Through our series of “Let’s Be Honest” conversations with communities across the country, we’ve learned the importance of openly discussing pressing concerns considered taboo in the American Muslim community.

How can we move the needle forward on issues such as racism, the generational and cultural divide, mental disorders, and domestic violence?

The panel featured:

Marwa Aly, Co-Producer of “UnMosqued” documentary

Khalid Latif, Executive Director (Imam) of the Islamic Center of New York University

Hind Makki, Founder of the Side Entrance blog

Rami Nashashibi, Executive Director of the Inner-City Muslim Action Network

Jihad Saafir, Imam of Masjid Ibaadillah in Los Angeles

Moderator: Jihad Turk, President of Bayan Claremont Islamic Graduate School
