Mission Statement: To increase understanding and alleviate misconceptions that revolve around the Islamic Faith today.
The Outreach program at the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh aims to strengthen relations between Muslims and people of all faiths by emphasizing and educating our neighbors on our shared human values. The Outreach Coordinator assists in organizing interfaith potlucks, campus lectures, school presentations, church and synagogue discussion meetings and various interfaith events held throughout the city of Pittsburgh.
The Outreach program's work culminates during Ramadan to celebrate Humanity Day, which is the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh's premier outreach event. Held annually during the sacred month of Ramadan, it’s a time when the ICP invites its friends and neighbors of all faiths to celebrate and honor members of the Pittsburgh community who are working to initiate dialogue and build bridges, thereby strengthening our bonds of humanity. The program concludes with a complimentary Iftar banquet in observance of breaking the fast.
One of the highlights of this year was the first Interfaith Planning Meeting that occurred on December 17th 2015. Around 57 people in total were in attendance and around 38 different Congregations/Organizations were represented.
