Members of the Islamic faith said the conference was a success in the amount of people it brought from all around the world sharing their views on Islamic culture.

 

Aisha Waheed said there are a lot of issues going on in every community like racism and classism. She said the conference highlighted those issues and addressed how everyone involved could help out with those changes.

 

Aisha Waheed said “How do we as a community sit down and put our heads together to discuss how we can move this country forward? A lot of people are doing that in the public square. They are going out and protesting. A part of that protesting is now we gotta now sit down , we gotta talk about what’s the problem instead of constantly just looking to leadership.”
