IAW 2009Next Monday – 16th November – sees the launch of the 15th Islam Awareness Week (IAW). The theme for this year’s IAW is “Walk the Talk” and is all about recognising our common humanity, celebrating our diversity and respecting each other.

As part of this, I have been invited to present the keynote address at the launch of IAW in Sandwell. My presentation will focus on the question, ‘Why do we need Islam Awareness Week?’

The event starts at 9:15am at The Public in West Bromwich and hopes to bring together around 130 people from a variety of different backgrounds to share in the day. The event also incorporates the formal launch of the the Inclusive Muslim Action Network (IMAN). IMAN was initially conceived in October 2008 to form a collective voice for Muslims in Sandwell.

Anyone wishing to attend the Sandwell event or wanting to know more  can do so by getting in touch with Wenda Leslie on 0121 569 4638 or via email at wenda_leslie@sandwell.gov.uk.
