Interfaith Forum

Interfaith CommUNITY Spiritual Center, in Mesa, will present Interfaith Forum – Q&A, a recurring event from 12:30 to 2 p.m., November 26. Phoenix-based attorney Deedra Abboud will explore common misconceptions about Muslim beliefs, the burden of prejudice born by Muslim women and the diversity of Muslim followers across the world. She is founder of the Global Institute of Solution Oriented Leadership and winner of the Martin Luther King Jr. Diversity Award in Tempe and the Martin Luther King Jr. Award presented by the Human Relations Commission in Phoenix. Abboud continues to use her 2018 U.S. Senate campaign to give a voice to the vulnerable and champion civil rights for all Arizonans.

Organized by Senior Pastor Rev. Julianne Lewis and author/speaker/musician Nazim Rashad, the event provides opportunities for religious leaders from around Arizona to share the tenets of their faith and personal stories. Lewis says, “We seek to bridge the gap of misunderstanding and prejudice about various world religions to help contribute a consciousness of peace and cooperation among all people of faith.”

Suggested donation is $10. Location: 952 E. Baseline Rd., Ste. 102, Mesa For more information, visit
