Bon Air Interfaith Trialogue

Each Spring Or Ami participates in the Bon Air & Southside Interfaith Trialogue event, which is co-hosted by the Islamic Center of Virginia and numerous churches in the Bon Air/Southside area of Richmond. Over a hundred people (mostly adults, but also some teens and younger children) come together to share food and learn about other people and religious traditions in our community.

This three-part series generally takes place in April or May and focuses on a different topic each year. Past topics have included: religious extremism, how to love your neighbor, and finding hope in challenging times. We invite you to attend the Trialogue this spring.
