So, What Happened at ISNA 2012?

Here’s a roundup of the long Islamic Society of North America’s 2012 Convention in Washington, DC- which attracted several thousand Muslims and non-Muslims. I was lucky enough to be there as an exhibitor for the Interfaith Alliance.

  1. Karen Armstrong, Keith Ellison, Asst. Atty. Gen. Perez, Rabbi Saperstein, & Cardinal McCarrick were amongst the high-profile speakers in attendance in support of interfaith partnership!

  7. The bazaar was amazing as usual, the merchants created an ambiance of being in a market in the Middle East or South Asia.

    It is a myth that only a #Muslim man can call for a divorce. Muslim women can as well – even if its just bc she can’t stand him. #49isnadc
