The ACLU of Utah is honored to co-host a Ramadan Iftar with the Utah Islamic Center on June 17!
Join Us Saturday: ACLU Iftar & Muslim Ban Update
YOU ARE INVITED!
Special Ramadan Iftar Dinner with the ACLU of Utah at the Utah Islamic Center
Saturday, June 17, 8:00 p.m.
In addition to breaking the Ramadan fast at sundown with a potluck dinner, we will make a short presentation on the status of the ACLU's challenge to the Trump Administration's attemps to ban Muslim and non-Muslim refugees to the United States. Allies to the Muslim community can learn a bit about Ramadan and the practice of iftar; members of the Muslim Community can learn more about the ACLU's work challenging religious discrimination!
Ramadan is a month-long religious holiday celebrated by Muslims throughout the world, characterized by daily fasting. The "iftar" is the evening meal eaten at sundown to break the daily fast.
Our event will begin at 8:00 p.m. Around 8:15 p.m., Marina Lowe, ACLU of Utah Legislative Policy Counsel, will give a brief presentation on the ACLU's ongoing fight against President Trump's Muslim Ban(s). We'll have some time for questions and discussion, too. Around 8:45 p.m., we will break to get food and prepare to break the fast at about 9:00 p.m.
NOTE: Out of respect for our hosts, there will be NO alcohol at this event. Food will also not contain gelatin, pork or lard. Also, please consider clothing that covers the body (to the wrists and to the ankles.)
