The CWSC Town Hall – Intersecting Faith and Intellect

Welcome to the CWSC Town Hall!

An opinion, viewpoints, and perspectives discussion with live audience call-in sponsored by the Community Wide Shuraa Conference…

The CWSC National Town Hall is the place where we tackle the big issues facing communities nationwide in a “Straight to The Point” discussion live on-air at American Muslim 360 Radio (AM360.org) 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 flush out the issues, identify the causes and not merely the effects, and finally to discover the solutions without fear of touching the “third rail.”

From critical topics such as Identifying Effective Institutional Leadership, Diversity of Institutional Voice and the Changing Role of Women in the Group Intellect to Understanding the Importance of Respect for the Group Intellect in Properly Implementing Shuraa Baynahum, the CWSC Town Hall is designed to forge new thinking from dialogue and then help forge change via intelligentsia tools like the MCNRD and VHRN. The Town Hall is yet another path where together, we can remake the world!

CWSC aims to provide a shared freedom space for the group intellect. Views expressed in Town Halls do not necessarily reflect the official policies and /or opinions of CWSC or AM360.

Normally up to five Town Halls are announced per year on topics based on feedback from our listenership. Stay tuned to AM360.org or listen in at (701) 719-4197 and check out the CWSC National Calendar of Events. Send in your ideas for a Town Hall topic to info@cwsc.us, tweet @CWShuraa, facebook us, or leave us a listener comment at (910) 317-0297.
