How can I reflect on my own experiences of racism and those of my children?
What do my children need to empower themselves? What do I need to empower myself? How is my own process related to that of my children?
What possibilities for action and intervention against experiences of racism arise for ourselves, as well as collectively?

The month of Ramadan began on April 2. We took this as an opportunity to meet in a small group for iftar, the breaking of the fast after sunset. We ate lots of delicious food and had good conversations about religious traditions and festivals. A great evening!

في الثاني من نيسان ابتدأ شهر رمضان المبارك. لذلك قررنا أن ننتهز هذه الفرصة وأن  نلتقي في مجموعة صغيرة عند غروب الشمس لتناول الإفطار سويةً. لقد كان إفطاراً شهياً وخلال ذلك تعرفنا على التقاليد الدينية المتبعة في هذا الشهر لدى المسلمين. لقد كانت فعلاً أمسية رائعة!


Ramadan Mubarak

We wish all Muslims a blessed Ramadan!
