WHAT IS THE INTERFAITH SYMPOSIUM
The Interfaith Symposium is a parallel track at the 18th Annual MAS-ICNA Convention. MAS is a dynamic, charitable, religious, social, cultural, and educational organization. Over the past two decades, MAS has expanded to more than 50 chapters across the United States.
Building Bridges, Not Walls
These past few years, America has gone through dramatic and drastic changes that have caught not only Muslims off-guard and unsafe, but also other faith-based and ethnic minorities, particularly immigrants. Now is a crucial time for coalition building and unity to stand strong in the face of hate and bigotry. Where else do we find compassion and hope in these times other than in people of faith and interfaith efforts? We hope you will consider joining us.
Luncheon and day-pass is only complimentary for our interfaith guests; additional seating may be available at luncheon for those registered in convention (with valid registration badge) at a nominal fee on December 27th, email firstname.lastname@example.org
