The Meet a Muslim program was founded by Moina Shaiq, a longtime resident of Fremont, our neighbor city to the north. After the San Bernadino shootings, Shaiq was moved to start educating people on what Muslims actually believe.
In this program, she gives a brief biography of herself and then invites the audience to ask questions. If people are shy to begin, she has a list of commonly asked questions to start with, and then people start asking their own. She says that no question will offend her since she is there to educate and build bridges.
A California library gave patrons the chance to learn about Islam by speaking to a practicing Muslim.
