2016 Week of Non-Violence, October 15-23

As Salaam Alaikum,
Dear Imam's and Community leaders

With Al-Islam being a religion of peace, our greetings being a prayer for Peace, and our Religious identity, Muslim, meaning essentially one wanting, surrendering to and seeking peace with ourselves, our fellow humans, and more importantly our Creator,  we are all aware of how important it is to support Nonviolent initiatives.  As such:

Please pass the word on to other Imams and leaders in your respective sections/regions and your networks.  We are counting on your support.
