Trainers: Pamela Schwartz, Director, Western MA Network to End Homelessness, former Northampton City Councilor, and long-time activist for social justice; and Naz Mohamed, who is a firm believer in interfaith dialogue as the most effective way to share her faith with her neighbors and community, and thus increase knowledge and understand of each other. Her hope is to provide comfort to those who fear Islam and Muslims; and Ann Turner, local writer of over 50 children’s books, a Catholic convert who sees her activism as a light in the world and a witness to justice.
