Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati 
POST-ELECTION STATEMENT

 

Our Islamic Center community has been since its inception fully committed to being welcoming and collaborative with all people and will do its part to further that goal regardless of the national tenor. We as Muslim-Americans congratulate President-elect Donald Trump and look forward to our continued civic engagement and full protections and rights as Americans.
There is no better time than now to set divisive politics and hurt behind us. Though sadly, this presidential campaign has been mean-spirited, alienating and has disrespected the very philosophy that is at the heart of this nation's founding, the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati will actively work to encourage dialogue that increases understanding of the challenges and contributions of all of our religious, racial and ethnic groups, including persons seeking citizenship.
We invite everyone to join us in this work of bringing about much-needed healing.
 
Shakila T. Ahmad,
President,
Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati

Islamic Center In The News

Every community has a narra tive.  Either that community controls the narrative or the narrative cont rols the community.   Now more than ever the American Muslim community has to take control of the narrative. This can only be achieved if as a community we are building bridges and inroads with media.  Media outlets want to cover stories and do pieces that people are interested in. They want viewers, readers, comments, and discussions.  It is critical that as a community we are more visible and more vocal in the media.
 
We have been blessed for wide and positive coverage of the Center.  When there is positive coverage we must all give feedback and acknowledge and appreciate the work of the media. Please take a few minutes to review the media links and give positive feedback where you feel comfortable.
