Two groups had the same idea so they’re visiting together. After the attack in Garland, Hope for Peace and Justice and Dallas County Young Democrats wanted to show solidarity with the local Muslim community so they decided to visit the Islamic Center in Irving.
Hope for Peace and Justice also planned the visit as part of its exploration of other faith traditions.
Dallas County Young Democrats wanted to show solidarity after Irving passed an anti-Islamic ordinance that prohibits Sharia Law from being implemented in the city.
After the 11 a.m. service at Cathedral of Hope, people will go out to lunch before heading over to Irving. Anyone interested in visiting the Islamic Center can meet at the church and join the group for lunch or meet in Irving at 2:15 p.m.
Islamic Center of Irving, 2555 Esters Road, Irving at 2:15 p.m. on Sunday, May 17.
