Join Muslim Community Network on April 23rd for a fun and interactive workshop on Islam and the environment. This is perfect for the whole family, so bring the little ones! In this workshop we will:

  • Understand the 5 tenants of environmental justice in Islam and its practical application in our daily lives.
  • Share ideas and approaches to environmental justice.
  • Brainstorm ideas on how to make your community’s Ramadan more “green”.
  • Learn how to be Green rangers – pick up trash and recycle, encourage friends to eat healthy snacks, identify and care for trees and wildlife in your neighborhood.

Please bring an empty plastic yogurt container. We will be doing a fun planting activity that you can bring home with you!
