Imam Yahya Hendi is the Muslim chaplain at Georgetown University, the first American University to hire a full-time Muslim chaplain, and he just concluded his 15 years of service as a Chaplain at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. Imam Hendi is a Public Policy Conflict Resolution Fellow of the Center for Dispute Resolution of the University of Maryland School of Law and the Maryland Judiciary's Mediation and Conflict Resolution Office. He is also the founder and the President of Clergy Beyond Borders.
Imam Hendi often visits and lectures at churches and synagogues hoping to create a new positive relationship between the followers of the three Abrahamic religions. In his lectures, Imam Hendi focuses on issues related to gender relations, domestic violence, world peace, social, economic and political justice, and inter-religious and interfaith issues.
Our 2019 Day on the Hill theme comes from Quran 4:135:
“O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even if it be against yourselves, your parents, and your relatives, or whether it is against the rich or the poor...”
In 2019, hundreds of people of faith will gather to ask themselves, their communities, and their representatives to Stand Out Firmly for Justice!
Join faithful advocates from across the state on February 7, 2019 to reflect on why we make our voices heard, to plan for continued actions in our home communities, and to make real change in the state of Minnesota.
