Inaugural Town Hall at St. Louis

Note: The Town Hall was not a standalone event, but rather part and parcel and near the very beginning of a visionary undertaking to build a national intelligentsia and sustainable resource center serving communities nationwide. We’ve kept the pre-Town Hall press and planning tools as a historical record of our Journey. Thank you to the St. Louis Town Hall Session working teams for committing your persons, time, intellect and financial resources to help advance our model community vision. May your kifayah be a sadaqa jariyah for you and your families…Blessings always.

We’ve kept the pre-Town Hall press and planning tools posted below for new CWSC registrants. Click here to view the convening group’s master document, The St. Louis Draft: A Summary of Discussions on Our Model Community Vision.

 As-Salaam-Alaikum wa Ramadan Mubarak!

You’re invited to attend the National Town Hall for Mutual Consultation August 15-17 in St. Louis, Missouri hosted by the Community Wide Shuraa Conference (CWSC). Be sure to checkout the ten (10) Advance Preparation Tools below.Just days after Eid-ul-Fitr, Muslims from every corner of the U.S. will convene to begin the monumental work of forming a national intelligentsia—a working group intellect to serve our community’s interests. Immediately after Ramadan, the group intellect will be at the height of its spiritual and intellectual zenith and most equipped to usher in a renaissance borne of a national intelligentsia.

No topic is off the table and you and your intellect are the guest speakers. There will be maximum opportunity afforded to hear what the people think–each one of us, female and males, non-imams and imams, from youth leaders to the most honored American Muslim pioneers. We’re obligated to be there if we can for each of us has a right and duty to speak to the group intellect on its affairs.

The Town Hall is not a standalone event, but rather part of a major undertaking to establish a sustainable institution serving every community in our Association and the broader historically disadvantaged communities they serve.

All events take place at the Crown Plaza Downtown, St. Louis. Register here Events and view accommodations information. Send email to with subject line Town Hall to get on the mailing list. I’ve made my reservations and by Allah (SWT) you’ll be there too. May this Ramadan be our best ever.
