UNISON Northern Ireland

Understanding Islam

Event Date: 
6 Mar 2019 - 18:00 to 20:00

UNISON Belfast (open to all)

Members of the Muslim community make up 0.2% of the Northern Ireland population but experience a disproportionate amount of prejudice.  Media portrayal of the Islamic faith is often set only in the context of global unrest.  This workshop describes how Islam is both a religion and a peaceful way of life, to allow people from a diverse society to understand the meaning of Islam and Muslims and to dispel common myths and misconceptions.   It will be delivered by Brenda Skillen, NI Muslim Family Association.   This is being run in partnership with our Black & Migrant Workers group and is open to all.
