Public Forum on Civic Engagement in Times of Crisis
Monday, September 28, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Presented by The Canadian Council of Muslim Women (CCMW)
Guest Panel: Rima Berns-McGown and Rizwan Mohammed
The Canadian Council of Muslim Women (CCMW) is a national not-for-profit organization whose overarching mission is to ensure the equality, equity and empowerment of Muslim women. The story of CCMW begins in 1982 when a group of dynamic and devoted Muslim women from across Canada congregated in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Led by the late Dr. Lila Fahlman, these women sought to mobilize their passion for social justice and faith in order to enrich their communities and work towards the common good of Canadian society.
For over 30 years CCMW has proudly advocated on behalf of Canadian-Muslims, encourage civic engagement, empower communities and lastly promote inter-cultural and inter-religious understanding. Past initiatives include the coalition for No Religious Arbitration, the Muslim Marriage Contract, My Canada and the Common Ground Project.
