    Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum invites you to a presentation and panel discussion at the Muslim Educational Trust Community and Educational Center to understand the underlying issues and share potential solutions for the recent spike in hate-related incidents. Professor Jack Levin, a nationally recognized expert on violence and hate, will discuss the psychology and dynamics behind this troubling trend. His presentation will be followed by a discussion moderated by Oregon Department of Justice Director of Civil Rights, Erious Johnson. The panel will include diverse community leaders, law enforcement personnel and elected officials, who will share their insights and take questions. Please join Attorney General Rosenblum and take a stand against hate.

    Jack Levin is the Brudnick Professor of Sociology and Criminology and co-director of the Center on Violence and Conflict at Northeastern University in Boston. Professor Levin's work on hate crimes, mass murder, serial killers, and prejudice has made him one of the most widely recognized and quoted sociologists in the public sector. For over 25 years, Professor Levin has used the sociological perspective to contextualize sensational media stories, dispel myths, influence public policy and change how people think about violence and hate crimes.

    Ramadan Tent Project Portland, OR
    through
    MET (Muslim Educational Trust)

    Ramadan Tent Project (RTP) is a London based organization with a goal of social change. Its mission is to provide Iftar - the dinner to break ones fast - to Muslims as well as anyone else who would like to join our event during the Holy Month of Ramadan. We are the first branch of RTP to host the Open Iftar in the United States. Last year, over three consecutive days, we had the pleasure of breaking our fast with a total of 600 people in our community, in the backyard of a local church. Everyone who attend came from different faiths and walks of life.

    We would like to invite you all to come join us in breaking our fast this Ramadan. We will be hosting Ramadan Tent at the Muslim Educational Trust on memorial day weekend.
