Our panelists include:

Imam Deen Shareef,
Convener of the Council of Imams in NJ and the spiritual leader of Masjid Waarith ud Deen, Irvington

Assemblywoman Verlina Reynolds-Jackson

Congregations from around the state will join what should be a powerful program inspiring us to work together to resolve racial disparities and injustices in our state. Our guests will share testimony of their personal experiences of racial injustice, and a discussion will follow about their vision of where change needs to start, and how we can be effective allies.
