March Meeting - Muslim Women's Council

In March, RCC met at the Islamic Center of Nashville to hear from the Muslim Women's Council. Aisha Lbhalla founded the Muslim Women’s Council of Tennessee, first with the purpose of getting Muslim women active and contributing to worthy causes, and now to bring them closer to those of other faith traditions. She, along with the rest of the Muslim Women’s Council, are reaching out to other like-minded organizations to get more involved in the community.
They opened up about how Muslim women have been discriminated against within the past few years in Tennessee and how they are working to be proactive about helping the community to change this. 
The Muslim Women’s Council was warmly welcomed to the RCC and encouraged to join and take part in the annual convention which is scheduled to take place in Nashville April 3-5th this year.
