  • UnMosqued : Film and Discussion
    01/19/2020 @ 2:00pm - 01/19/2020 @ 4:30pm Auditorium Main Branch

    UnMosqued is a documentary film which aims to highlight the growing need for reform in many of the mosques found in America. The purpose of the documentary is to engage a group of people who have been disconnected from their local mosque and explore the various reasons that have led to this sentiment. It is clear that many youth who are likely to be second or even third generation Americans have felt judged or unwelcome at a mosque. It may be the degree of friendliness or a lack of ownership that breeds this feeling. Masajid may not be doing enough to attract and retain the youth, which further alienates the future members of the community from using the mosque space for their spiritual growth.

    The film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring area youth leaders.
