Join us for a Shoulder to Shoulder public conversation on “Multifaith Solidarity: 20 Years Since 9/11” on Thursday, September 9th at 1:00pmET with Imam Khalid Latif who serves as University Chaplain for New York University and Executive Director of the Islamic Center at NYU.

In conversation with Shoulder to Shoulder, Imam Latif will share stories and insights from his ongoing work “to carve out a much-needed space for young American Muslims to celebrate their unique identity and have their voices heard in the larger public sphere.” He’ll reflect on the layered impacts and repercussions of 9/11, how it changed America in many ways, and how 9/11 shifted how Americans who are Muslim (and those who are perceived to be) experience life in the U.S. (even for those who weren’t born yet).

Imam Latif will also highlight his experiences and perspectives on building multifaith solidarity, working alongside folks of different faith and cultural backgrounds in order to advance justice and inclusion here in the U.S. Together, we’ll explore what brings us hope, what connects us to one another across differences, and what motivates us to continue on in this work of building a society where all are treated with dignity.
