    Dear Friends,
    Congratulations on your upcoming event. We are members of the Bridge Alliance and received a note about the offering. If there is a place to share the Charter for Compassion International’s publication on Islamophobia we would appreciate it. This 150 page book is on our website: http://www.charterforcompassion.org/index.php/compassion-and-religion/islamophobia-guidebook. It is being distributed by the Parliament for World Religions, the United Religions Initiative and a number of other prominent interfaith groups.

    Success on your event,
    Marilyn Turkovich, Director
    Charter for Compassion International
