CWSC National Townhall

Black Lives Matter Too Panel Convening

“Verily the most honored among you in the sight of Allah is the one most righteous among you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted with all things…”  Al-Qur’an, 49:13

INTERNATIONAL – Planning is underway for the next National Town Hall on Independence Day, Saturday July 4th, 2020 at 10 a.m. EST when CWSC will convene a guest panel to discuss the strategic implications of Black Lives Matter as the U.S. gradually opens the economy in the midst of a pandemic. 

The CWSC National Town Hall is where we tackle the big issues facing communities nationwide in a “Straight to The Point” live on-air discussion  at American Muslim 360 Radio (AM360) with guest panelists, moderators, and the AM360 Listenership that includes you. The Town Hall unlike any other AM360 programming offers an extended duration format and consequently indepth forum to help flesh out issues, identify the causes and not merely the effects, and finally discover the solutions without fear of touching “third rails.”

For this special Independence Day Town Hall, CWSC we’ll delve into what are some of the now more obvious pressing and also prescient issues and strategic solutions across the spectrum that we as a citizenry ought to consider, as America “opens up” gradually in the face of a pandemic, while exposing old wounds of racism.

This Town Hall discussion is also intended to help galvanize formation of an Ad Hoc Team of CWSC believers nationally that will help write a Comprehensive Resolution to be published by the CWSC National Think Tank preliminarily titled:  Re-Opening the U.S. Economy, Intellect, Faith and Heart: A Post COVID-19 Path to Resetting the Social and Economic Balance of Justice in AmericaThe planned Resolution will also integrate the impact of the death of Mr. George Floyd (may G-d’s Mercy be upon him).
