We Choose Love Interfaith Service and "Who We are" Exhibit

Saturday, May 26th, 2018, 6:30 p.m.

MET Center Al-Madinah Hall: 10330 SW Scholls Ferry Road, Tigard, OR 97223

Join us for an interfaith service to commemorate and honor those affected by the horrific attack on the MAX train on May 26, 2017.

Panelists:

  • Asha Deliverance, Mother of Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche
  • Micah Fletcher, Surviving Hero
  • Pastor Matt Hennessee, Vancouver Avenue First Baptist Church
  • Jawad Khan, MET Board Members and Oregon Islamic Academy Teacher
  • Maxine Fookson, Portland Network Against Racism and Islamophobia
  • Sankar Raman, The Immigrant Story

Moderator:

  • Ronault (Polo) Catalani, Immigrant Policy Advisor, New Portlander Policy Commission

We will also be featuring the Exhibit "Who We Are: A Portrait Exhibit Honoring Muslim Women in Our Community." MET is partnering with the Immigrant Story, to tell the stories of six Muslim women in our community. Collected over the past year, these stories represent voices of healing and those of our community's Muslim women.

The exhibit will feature portraits and stories displayed side by side so that viewers can make a human connection with the subjects. Our hope is that this display will provide an opportunity for visitors to explore the emotions of this particular community, which continues to bear the brunt of hate speech in the United States.

We will break our fast and potluck dinner will be served at 8:46 p.m.
