Muslim youth in Minneapolis

/ 5 September 2009

Last week, several conversations about immigration and refugees during First Week touched briefly on the challenges the Somali community has faced here in Minnesota with some of their young men being drawn off into conflicts elsewhere. Today I was reading this piece up at Religion Dispatches, and realized that part of the challenge we face here in town is that there is so little conversation and relationship between disparate communities here. How can we change that? We need to build relationships!
