CAIR-Seattle: Muslim, Jewish, Christian Teens Build Habitat Homes


On October 2, 2004, more than sixty teens
of diverse faiths and backgrounds will unite to build homes for Habitat for
Humanity. The young men and women will join the two-week
interfaith-construction blitz at Snoqualmie Ridge organized by Together We
Build A World Community (TWB), an alliance of the Seattle office of the
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Seattle) and 13 Jewish, Muslim
and Christian Seattle-area congregations and organizations.

TWB was formed post-9/11 as vehicle for people of different faith
communities, who were traditionally separated from each other, to come
together to work for the common good.

“Working on community projects under the umbrella of cooperation and
friendship breaks down barriers and helps us all to realize that we are
much more alike than we are different,” said CAIR-Seattle Chair Samia

WHEN: Saturday, October 2, 2004, 8:30 am ­ 4:00 pm

WHERE: East King County Habitat for Humanity site at Snoqualmie Ridge,
Southeast Orchard Drive and Southeast Gravenstein Court, Snoqualmie, WA

CAIR, America’s largest Islamic civil liberties group, has 29 regional
offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada.
