Join WorldDenver for a free community event featuring Mohamed Amin, Founder of Average Mohamed

Average Mohamed was started to “talk plainly to humanity – to all of you. Issues of race, religion, and 'fitting in' affect all of us, especially our youth, so it’s time we talk about them.”
“The solution to so many of these issues is simple: dialogue. Too often, silence leads to misunderstanding and extreme views. Our founder, Mohamed Amin waited for a straightforward, logical program that would help youth to understand their unique contribution to society, and appreciate others with different ethnicities, races, and belief systems. While waiting, and waiting, and waiting, it dawned on him that an average guy can spark these dialogues. If it is an average guy who espouses hate, intolerance, and extremism, all of us average folks need to speak up and challenge this narrative.”
The goal is to give “parents, kids and clergy talking points to counter falsehood propagated by extremists, racists and others who promote intolerance”… and “share love of country, culture, and democracy with children across the world."
