It is essential that our community comes together to discuss the challenges that we face in order to ascertain what solutions can be employed to continue our growth. The foundation has made it a priority to bring people together in an organized fashion to share their thoughts on the pertinent issues our community faces. Our research team has used these forums both to gather data, as well as share it, to provide deeper insights to the condition of our community.
Our forums and seminars have been coordinated in conjunction with our surveys and research studies. Depending on the focus area, the forums have been used to gather data as well as share it. Subjects that we have focused on have included: Muslim-American identity, civic engagement, youth programming, center leadership, and strategic planning for the community. They provide a platform for individuals and organizations to discuss the results of our research studies and contribute to bettering the understanding of the condition of the community as a whole.
