MUSLIMS FOR PROGRESSIVE VALUES
2nd Annual National Conference
July 17- 20, 2008

Muslims for Progressive Values cordially invites you to our second annual National Conference
Muslims for Progressive Values is dedicated to bringing together progressive Muslims and friends who share their values to work for a more humane world. We welcome all who are interested in discussing, promoting and working for the implementation of progressive values: social justice, human rights, economic opportunity, separation of church and state, as well as tolerant and inclusive understandings of Islam.
Join fellow progressive Muslims from around the United States for two days of spiritual refreshment, strategizing for the future, and exploration of this year's theme, Establishing the Progressive Mindset.
