On May 12, Deputy Director & Counsel Sufyan Sohel met with staff at Hamdard Center in Rogers Park. Hamdard’s mission is to promote the physical and emotional health and psychological well-being of individuals and families by offering hope, help and healing. Sufyan was asked to come conduct a Know Your Rights Training so that Hamdard staff could be better aware of some of the legal challenges facing the communities they serve and be able to provide additional information and resources to their clients.
On May 17, Sufyan facilitated an Islam 101 workshop for the staff and board of Open Communities in Winnetka, IL. Open Communities promotes housing, economic, & social justice in north suburban Chicago. As the Islamic holy month of Ramadan approaches, Open Communities wanted to not only better understand Islam, but to be aware and respectful of religious obligations of the Muslim community members.
