Muslim Educational Trust: 10330 SW Scholls Ferry Road, Tigard, OR 97223

Join us for an evening of discussion about "Women in Islam: Status and Empowerment." The status of women is society is neither a new issue nor is it a fully settled one. The position of Islam on this issue has been among the subjects presented to the world with the least objectivity. This forum will provide an exposition of what Islam stands for in this regard.

Our keynote speaker is Sister Nadira Najieb, Muslim Community Center of Portland Board Member. Our panel will include Sister Laila Cully, Retired Business Finance Officer; Sister Julie Ahmed, Oregon Islamic Academy Teacher.


Please do join us for an engaging evening, and bring your favorite dish!
We will also be recognizing the student winners of our Annual Speech Tournament and Spelling Bee.
We look forward to seeing you!

Our Keynote Speaker


Todd Green Associate professor of religion, Luther College

Green's research focuses on Islamophobia in the United States and Europe. His first book on the topic, The Fear of Islam: An introduction to Islamophobia in the West, was cited this past year in an amicus curiae brief field in the U.S. Supreme Court by the NAACP, the National Urban League, and other civil rights organizations. Green's most recent book is Presumed Guilty: Why We Shouldn't Ask Muslims to Condemn Terrorism. The Book argues that asking Muslims to condemn terrorist attacks is a distraction that prevents majority populations in the United States and Europe both from facing their own violent histories and from asking critical questions a bout how their countries' national security initiatives and foreign policies contribute to a violent world order.
