(CINCINNATI, 5/2/06) – The Cincinnati office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Cincinnati) co-sponsored an interfaith prayer event for the victims of violence in Darfur on Sunday, April 30.
The program, held at the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati, drew a standing room only crowd of 400 Muslims, Christians, Jews and Buddhists. Attendees completed the “Save Darfur Now” postcards and pledged to call their representatives to voice their concerns on the Darfur crisis.
“When all faiths work together, the voices for Darfur will be heard,” said Zeinab Schwen, Chairperson of CAIR-Ohio Cincinnati office.
The sponsors of the event included: CAIR-Ohio, the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati, Muslim Mothers Against Violence, The Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati, Wise Temple, and the American Jewish Committee.
CAIR, America’s largest Islamic civil liberties group, is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and has 32 regional offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada.
