This Sunday, July 21st, Vicki Tamoush will be speaking at the Adult Education Hour at All Saints Church, 132 N Euclid Ave Pasadena, CA 91101, at 10:15 AM. Interfaith Witnesses are welcome to attend. If you have friends in the Pasadena area, feel free to share this invitation with them. We look forward to welcoming new IWs!
On Saturday the 22nd, Interfaith Witnesses and Brea Congregational Church will host a workshop on nonviolent direct action. The workshop will be led by Mr. Jonathan Kuttab, a noted Palestinian human rights activist.
The workshop will be held at Brea Congregational Church at 9:00 am (registration at 8:30).
On June 15 the Islamic Circle of North America (Southern California) will hold its annual fundraising banquet. Because anti-Muslim groups have targeted ICNA in the past, we expect to witness outside the banquet this year.
We would like some members to be on “standby.” One or two of us will arrive early and send out emails and/or text messages to those on standby if more witnesses are needed. If you’re able to be on standby for this event, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (not the group email list).
On May 18, Interfaith Witnesses and the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California hosted a workshop on nonviolent direct action, led by Rev. James Lawson, a leading activist in the civil rights movement of the 1960s. As a young man, Rev. Lawson studied the principles of Gandhian nonviolence in India, and taught these theories and methods to civil rights activists in the American south.
Below is a video, provided by the Islamic Shura Council, showing highlights from Rev. Lawson’s talk.
