My Sojourn with
An Indigenous Muslim Community
In Mexico

By Kathy Espinoza

Islam has firmly taken root in Mexico, and throughout the Americas. Over the years Muslims have carried out dawa programs and established communities that are beginning to ripen and bloom into distinct and diverse ways. In particular, a Muslim community in southern Mexico is just one of many important communities in Mexico that has grown and become a vibrant and nearly self-sustaining community.

This summer Kathy Espinoza visited such a Muslim community in Chiapas, Mexico. This Sunday she will share her experiences about her brief yet profound stay in this corner of the earth. You are invited to learn more about Muslims in Mexico and how it has established a model of community cohesion, family, and business.

Food & refreshments will be served.
There will be a photo slide show.
Sunday, July 29th 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
At the
631 Jackson St., Hayward, CA 94544

Kathy Umayya Espinoza is a poet, community activist, and da'i. She completed her B.A. at San Jose State University and in the fall will begin her M.A. in social services.
