Religions United invites you to a special event featuring Congressman Keith Ellison, D-Minn.

The Muslim community of Oklahoma City is taking advantage of Ellison's visit to OKC to host a complimentary lunch event for members of other faiths to get to know their Muslim neighbors.

This is not a political rally but an occasion to build bridges and create greater understanding, especially in light of recent outbreaks of violence in the Middle East in response to an anti-Islamic video produced in the USA.

Ellison is the first Muslim to be elected to Congress as well as the first African American to be elected from Minnesota.

Despite the short notice, we hope that you will be able to join us on Sunday for this important interfaith social gathering at Langston University OKC Campus located at 4205 North Lincoln Blvd. Oklahoma City 73105. Please contact Adam Soltani at 405-248-5853 with questions!
