Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) will be hosting its 52nd annual conference in Chicago, September 4-7. The annual gathering is a time for American Muslims to pray, inspire and discuss issues impacting their community (and beyond). Among this year's speakers will be Blessed Tomorrow leader and ISNA president, Imam Mohamed Magid, a thoughtful thinker who has devoted his life to social justice, encouraging his community to act for the climate.
This year, however, the Islamic community has refocused its concern on climate change with the release of the Islamic Declaration on Global Climate Change. Muslims around the world realize that climate change impacts the world's poorest, specifically those in Muslim-majority countries. Making climate change a paramount concern for Muslims and all people of faith. Climate change is a moral issue that demands the action of all humans, and no better time to speak on this issue than at ISNA.
One of the largest impediments to climate action is our inability to speak about it, a point made by CNN earlier this month. Which is why we encourage all Muslims attending this year's conference to make climate change a priority talking point within your community.
