Building Unity: Standing Against Sectarianism Together

Building Unity: Standing Against Sectarianism Together

The tragic murder of four Muslim men in Albuquerque, New Mexico, created fear and prayers that the killer would be brought to justice. When the community learned that the suspect was Muslim with possible sectarian motivations, the news shocked the community to its core.

For decades, sectarian violence has devastated the lives of countless people in many majority Muslim countries. American Muslims have been blessed to be free of ugly sectarian violence that continues to plague many nations. At this moment, we must proudly reassert our unity and stand against sectarianism.

WHAT: Prayer and Unity Service in Remembrance of Albuquerque Victims

WHEN: Saturday, August 13th at 8:10 P.M.
