You are invited to a community iftar ("break fast") that brings together Muslims and non-Muslims for a shared evening meal during the month of Ramadan. Henna painting and other craft activities start at 6pm, panel discussion at 7pm, and dinner at 8:30pm.

This new conversation series puts politics and policy aside to further community discussions about immigration topics, and how Utahns welcome people to the neighborhood. The U.S. is home to nearly 34 million lawful immigrants and another 11 million people who are undocumented.* Local Conversations offers the opportunity to meet and understand the needs and contributions of these new Americans among us, through film, presentations, and panel discussions moderated by Lara Jones of KRCL RadioActive.

Presented by The University of Utah Center for Research on Migration and Refugee Integration, Helping Hand for Relief and Development Inc., One America Movement, in partnership with the City Library's Marmalade Branch and 90.9fm KRCL.
