A nation-wide campaign called Islam Understood, launched last month by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, is scheduled to come to Kingston on Saturday, February 4.
The Kingston open house is one of over 150 to be held across the country, along with 300 visits to other Canadian towns, with the goal of attempting to remove “misunderstandings around Islam, create bridges of peace, and give everyone an opportunity to meet a Muslim.”
The local educational open house will take place February 4th from 1 pm to 5 pm in the Isabel Turner branch of the Kingston Public Library at 935 Gardiners Road. It will be held simultaneous with nine other open houses across Canada.
Organizers are asking Kingston residents to attend the open house and show their support for the campaign.
Follow the campaign on Twitter using the hashtag #IslamUnderstood.
