A Portrait Exhibit Honoring Muslim Women in Our Community at the Muslim Educational Trust

WHO WE ARE, A Portrait Exhibit Honoring Muslim Women in Our Community
Saturday, May 26, 2018, at 7:00 PM
Muslim Educational Trust
10330 SW Scholls Ferry Road
Tigard, Oregon, 97223
In conjunction with the Muslim Educational Trust (MET) and as part of an interfaith service to honor those affected by the horrific attack on the MAX train on May 26, 2017, The Immigrant Story is proud to help tell the stories of six Muslim women in our community. Collected over the past year, these stories represent voices of healing and those of our community’s Muslim women.
The exhibit will feature portraits and stories displayed side by side so that viewers can make a human connection with the subjects. Our hope is that this display will provide an opportunity for visitors to explore the emotions of this particular community, which continues to bear the brunt of hate speech in the United States.
The event will begin at MET immediately after the interfaith service, which is scheduled for Saturday, May 26, 2018, at 7:00 PM. The Muslim Educational Trust is located at 10330 SW Scholls Ferry Road, Tigard, Oregon, 97223.
