Three-part series on Islam comes to Mountain View

 

The Mountain View Human Relations Commission will be hosting a three-part speaker series on "Understanding Islam," moderated by Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian. Each event will feature a panel of experts and activists from the Muslim community.

Last year, Simitian led a similar Islamic series in Palo Alto, which was well-received and sold out. He said he hoped more citizens could attend now that the event will be repeated at a larger venue in Mountain View.

The first event in the series, "What does it mean to be Muslim?" will be held from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on April 16. The next panel will discuss "Women and Islam" from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on April 23. The final event will focus on domestic fears of Islamic extremism, and will be held from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on April 30. All the speaker events will be held at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts at 500 Castro St. Admission is free, but space is limited.
