Webinar sponsored by Interfaith at Augsburg and Muslim Student Association with thanks to the Bataldan Ethics Grant.
Please join us for a panel discussion with:
Imam Abdisalam Adam, Assistant Principal of Highland High School in St. Paul, member of the Fridley School Board; former Augsburg Interfaith Fellow
Cadnaan Deeq, former Augsburg student
Farhia Budul, CPRS, CPP, FPRS, Executive Director, Niyyah Recovery Initiative
Niyyah Recovery Initiative (NRI) is the first Recovery Community Organization in the nation to provide culturally responsive peer recovery support, education, awareness and advocacy in the East African immigrant, refugee, and Muslim population in Minnesota.
At a time when the local Somali community is facing a crisis of opioid addiction, we will hear the perspectives of a community leader and educator, an expert in culturally responsive peer recovery support, and a student. In addition to learning more about the crisis we will focus on ways religious communities, health care providers and Augsburg are responding and might collaborate in the future. There will be time for questions from participants.
