Each year, a core network of anti-Muslim groups spend over $30 million dollars to make people afraid of Islam and their American Muslim neighbors. The websites, YouTube videos, books, white papers, lobbying, and media stars of this anti-Muslim industry turn the hearts and minds of people against one another, paving the way for a more divided, fearful future. We don’t have to live in that future. Together we can build a future based on our shared values and vision for America!

We cordially invite the public, faith leaders from all churches, mosques, synagogues and temples as well as civic, education and community leaders to join Aneelah Afzali (MAPS-AMEN) and Pastor Terry Kyllo (Neighbors in Faith) to better understand the anti-Muslim industry, the threat it poses to our nation and civil liberties, and what we can do about it together. This event will include time for Q & A and interaction with faith, political and education leaders in the Tri-Cities area.

Aneelah Afzali, Esq. is the Executive Director of the American Muslim Empowerment Network (AMEN) at the Muslim Association of Puget Sound (MAPS). Aneelah is a proud American Muslim, an interfaith advocate, a community leader, and named Seattle's Most Influential "Bridge Builder" in 2017 by Seattle Met Magazine. She graduated from the University of Oregon Honors College, and was named a Chayes International Service Fellow at Harvard Law School.

Pastor Terry Kyllo serves as the director of Neighbors in Faith, an interfaith effort to recognize Muslims as neighbors and partners in building a more peaceful world, authorized by the Episcopal and Lutheran churches in Western Washington. Terry was the recipient of the Faith Action Network Interfaith Leadership Award in 2016, the Interfaith Leadership Award from the Muslim Association of Puget Sound in 2017, and the Sultan and Saint Peace award in 2017.
