“United For Change” is What’s Needed

Published

United for Change was created to galvanize the Muslim leadership in North America to take on issues that are too large for any one individual leader, organization or group to effectively address. In our first two conferences, we have called attention to the issues of Malaria in Africa and practical steps needed to preserve the integrity of the family. This year marks ten years since the attacks of September 11, 2001. It also marks the beginning of what promises to be a hard fought presidential election. These issues combine to point towards Islam and Muslims once again being in the spotlight, in a way far more intense than occurred during the 2010 midterm Congressional elections. We all remember how elements in the Republican Party made Islam a wedge issue and the ensuing significance of events such as the Park 51 Mosque controversy and the national attention generated by Terry Jones’ proposed “Qur’an” burning.

Now, with the stakes much higher, we find the nation at a critical turning point in its relationship with Islam and Muslims. To help contribute to a wholesome and beneficial discourse around issues related to Islam, Muslims and the future of the United States, and more importantly to present clear and practical steps to move the nation forward as a positive force in the world, United for Change, in conjunction with Zaytuna College, presents its most ambitious project yet. United We Stand: One Nation, One Destiny is a program in which leading intellectuals, activists and visionaries from the United States, Canada and Europe will outline the parameters of a new discourse and the points of a new program, which, if adopted will help to steer America and the West away from a potentially catastrophic collision with the Muslim world.

    Thank you for letting us know about this new program, United We Stand. I believe that this is a great initiative to help improve Islam and Muslim’s image in the U.S. Like you mentioned the timing is perfect with the 10th anniversary of September 11th approaching us.

    Is Imaam Sayed Hassan a shiite?
    And is Hamza Yusuf a sufi?
