Minnesota Establishes Diversity Committee

The Star Tribune unit of the Minnesota Newspaper & Communications Guild held a Diversity Dialogue featuring speakers from the Islamic Resource Group. The presentation was called Islam 101 and the two presenters explained the basic prin- ciples of the Muslim faith, cultural practices, and issues Muslims face. The event was held less than one week before the November elections, for a standing room only crowd of about 50 people. It was a great success for the local’s newly formed Diversity Committee.
