Know Your Neighbor - Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati - June 10

We Invite You to an Important Open House:

"Only by talking with those who are different from us can we begin to foster true understanding & empathy"

Saturday, June 10 at 1:00 pm, 

This upcoming Saturday, like many Saturdays for years, we are holding a "Know your Neighbor" open house to welcome all members of the the Greater Cincinnati community into our mosque and Center. We hold these events because diversity and mutual understanding between people of all faiths, races, and ages forms the foundation of a strong community.

Due to planned activities of small group of extreme people and the hateful acts of others to stigmatize American Muslims this Ramadan, we are redoubling our efforts to welcome all people to share part of their Saturday afternoon with us to show unity, strength and a belief in the American principle of religious freedom.

Will you join us this Saturday to send a clear message that there is no room for hate or bigotry here in Cincinnati?

RSVP to toursandtalks@cincinnatiislamiccenter.org with your name and number of attendees.


Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit - June 9th

'Every year the Midwest Regional Sustainability Summit is the place to capture ideas, connect with people and share enthusiasm around all the opportunities presented by sustainability in this Region.

6-2017vanJones.png

The 2017 Summit will have a special focus on Sustainability and Equity, exploring how sustainability work can include and benefit all members of society. We will explore why equity is often overlooked in the discussion around sustainability, and the ways in which new economic opportunities can be pursued that are both socially and environmentally just. 

To underscore this point, the keynote speaker this year is Van Jones. Jones is, among many things, a leader working to build an equitable green economy. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in linking the economy, the environment and social justice, notably through initiatives he has founded such as The Dream Corps, Green for All and Rebuild the Dream.

In additional to a key note address by Van Jones, this year's Summit will include:

  • Breakout sessions where attendees can dive deeper into issues such as sustainable business supply chains, the digital work force, waste reduction and the circular economy, transportation, economic development, the Green Cincinnati Plan.
  • A lunchtime awards ceremony honoring area small business leaders who have successfully incorporated sustainability into their business practices
  • Post-Summit Reception and Networking
