Guest Speaker: Gilary Massa, National Council of Canadian Muslims
Islam 101 and Islamophobia in Canada
Everything you’ve wanted to know about Islam and Muslims but were afraid to ask
As outlined previously, for our next DCFLA Open Forum #Two, our Guest Speaker will be Gilary Massa from the National Council of Canadian Muslims. Her segment is titled “Islam 101 and Islamophobia” subtitled “Everything you’ve wanted to know about Islam and Muslims but were afraid to ask“. This should be a fascinating, interactive discussion where we’ll learn just what is going on in the Canadian and World Muslim community beyond what we see in the headline news; dispelling myths and fictions, replaced with knowledge and reality. As well as verbal questions, you will be able to submit anonymous, written questions.
While this discussion will be the main feature of the evening, there will be other interesting topics on the agenda.
April 19-21, 2018 will also see the Liberal 2018 National Convention take place in Halifax. A significant part of these conventions are setting Liberal Party policy with resolutions put forward by the Membership of the Party. Your DCFLA Policy Committee, led by Policy Chair Ed Crewson, has crafted two resolutions our Association will be putting forward for consideration; a resolution to aid farmers with financial support covering uninsured disasters, especially critical in these times of climate change and; a resolution to protect members of corporate pension funds with the current Sears pension fiasco being a prime example where such protections are needed. These resolutions will be discussed at Open Forum #Two.
Also to be discussed will be future activities of the Association in the coming months including plans for the next Open Forum, a planned Road Trip, our next DCFLA Dinner/Theatre event and more.
Your attendance is free of charge but of course all voluntary donations will be most gratefully received!
Avoid disappointment! To be sure you will be able to attend Open Forum #Two, please RSVP by no later than Thursday September 21. Better yet, RSVP Now!
