Looking for Common Ground

How can Humanists and Muslims live and work together in 21st Century London?

London is probably the most diverse and vibrant city in the world. One in eight of our fellow Londoners is a Muslim, but how much do we know about London’s Muslim communities? And how much do they know about Humanism? Is there common ground? What diversity exists amongst Muslims in London? What is changing? Can we see beyond our differences? How can we work together?
This evening of discussion is a unique opportunity to address these questions and others you may wish to ask.
Alom Shaha, author of “The Young Atheists Handbook” will be in conversation with:
Mamadou Bocoum - Public Relations Officer for the Sharia Council
Sara Khan - Co-Founder and Director of the human rights charity Inspire
Yasmin Rehman - Chief Executive of the Greenwich Inclusion Project (Grip) that works for community cohesion
Huda Jawad - Advisor at the Centre for Academic Shi'a Studies and Research Coordinator for Solace Women’s Aid.
The event is free to attend and open to all but we will ask for donations on the door to cover our costs, we ask you to give what you personally can afford.
The evening is organised jointly by London Humanists groups in association with Conway Hall Ethical Society and the BHA as part of Interfaith Week.
In the first half of the evening each speaker will be in a one to one conversation with Alom Shaha.
After an interval everyone will return as a panel and will take questions from the audience.
The evening will conclude around 9.30 p.m.
Soft drinks and wine will be served before the event and during the interval by the CLHG.
Please register your intention to attend via Eventbrite, this is free to do so and important so we know how many intend to attend.
