On Friday March 17, members of the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB) are holding a meet-and-greet with Indivisible Cambridge (IC), a local advocacy group in Cambridge.

Indivisible Cambridge is an advocacy group on Facebook with a simple but important mission; “resist Trump and his dangerous agenda”. The group currently has over 500 members in its closed Facebook group and The Cambridge branch of ISB welcomes Indivisible Cambridge members to attend one of their Friday prayer services. The group is invited to ISB's Juma prayer at 1 p.m. at their center's location at 204 Prospect St.

Members of the Islamic Society are hoping Friday’s event could be the start of a series that encourages members of the Cambridge community to speak about Islam. This event will provide a space for allies and the Islamic community to discuss and share experiences that will bring the Cambridge community even closer.

Read Alanna Mallon’s, one of the Facebook group's administrators, post from March 3 regarding the event below:

"We have been invited to attend the prayer service and convene with members after the service and speak with them about topics around Islam and faith, the “Muslim Ban” and how it’s affects them and answering questions about how members can connect to the greater Cambridge community via volunteer opportunities and their children’s schools. All while enjoying some yummy lunch items.

This invitation is open to all IC members, please let us know in the comments below if you like to attend! The Islamic Society of Boston is trying to figure out a way to best interact with community groups and we are the first in their planned series. This has been such a difficult and trying time for our Muslim community members. This show of support, friendship and love will be a wonderful way for their members to meaningfully connect with allies”"
