Come explore Islam in the World and in Your Classroom

Register now for the K8 conference! You'll start the day with Professor Kayaoglu, who will present Islam 101 to all attendees. Break out sessions will feature discussions on Muslims in America, books and other research materials on Islam, and a women's panel led by Terese Saliba. Then, we'll have a midday panel by teenage refugees, who will speak to what teachers need to know about the refugee children in our schools.
Expect a wonderful Moroccan lunch, catered by the MAPS center. Finally, end your exploration of Islam with a session led by Aneelah Afzali. She will address Islamophobia in our nation and our schools. It's going to be a powerful and enjoyable day, we can't wait to see you there!
