German Delegation at NICC - April, 23, 2016

The NICC Outreach team in collaboration with the Community Relations Committee (CRC) of Mayor Andrew Ginther, hosted the German delegation at NICC on Saturday April 23, 2016. The visit was also accompanied by Muslim community leaders from Dayton and Toledo areas. The delegation had the opportunity to meet many community leaders from Central-Ohio, including Diversity coordinators from Hilliard School District and Somali Community Center. 

Here, at the Noor Islamic Cultural Center they had the opportunity to discuss highly successful efforts to integrate refugees and the positive impact those efforts have had on the community, including the creation of nearly 8,000 jobs supported by refugee-owned businesses.

Together with Cultural Vistas and Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung, a total of 24 professionals from Germany were part of this delegation visiting USA to learn firsthand how some US communities are welcoming refugees and to take that knowledge back to their own communities, which are facing challenges with an unexpected influx of migrants. Participants have traveled to Atlanta, GA; Clarkston, GA; Boise, ID; St. Louis, MO; and Columbus, OH to visit local government leaders and nonprofit organizations and talk with immigrants and refugees.

The NICC leadership is thankful to the CRC team and German delegation for this opportunity to dialogue. We are hopeful that through such collaborations and joint efforts we all can develop trans-Atlantic synergies in addition to developing local partnerships to work in finding amenable programs that will support influx of migrants.

Columbus City Council Passes Anti-Islamophobia Resolution

On Monday, October 24th, the Columbus City Council (Michael Stinziano, Elizabeth Brown, Mitchell Brown,  Granville Hardin, Jaiza Paige, Eileen Paley and President Zack Klein)  passed a resolution condemning religious intolerance and the rise of Islamophobia.


This resolution firmly declared that the City of Columbus supports the Muslim community, and that Columbus is a city that welcomes all. To show sincere appreciation for this resolution, more than 200 Muslim community members and leaders from all over Central Ohio attended the meeting, and made a profound impact. At a time when sentiments of hate and discrimination are prevalent in society, the Columbus City’s Government and the community, together, proved that America is truly a land of freedom for all. 


Statement from Councilmember Michael Stinziano:


 Today, Columbus City Council took a stand against hate and passed a resolution to condemn religious intolerance and the rise of Islamophobia, and declare support for the Muslim community in the City of Columbus.


Columbus is home to thousands of Muslims who's faith inspires them to give back every day to contribute to our City as United States military personnel, police officers, doctors, nurses, caregivers, business owners (small and large!), teachers, and many other roles integral to our success of Columbus.


Elected officials, faith community leaders, residents and activists stood together in solidarity and in support of all residents and pledged to advance equity and value diversity in the City of Columbus and confront all forms of religious bigotry and intolerance.


I am very appreciative of the support of council and the community to pass this resolution. Diversity and inclusion make Columbus a stronger, more vibrant cityColumbus is home to thousands of Muslims who's faith inspires them to give back every day to contribute to our City as United States military personnel, police officers, doctors, nurses, caregivers, business owners (small and large!), teachers, and many other roles integral to our success of Columbus.t for the Muslim community in the City of Columbus.t for the Muslim community in the City of Columbus.

Narrated Abu Huraira (radi Allahu anhu):

I heard Allah's Apostle (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) saying. 'Allah divided Mercy into one-hundred parts and kept ninety-nine parts of it with Him and sent down one part on earth. And because of that, its one single part, His creations are Merciful to each other, so much so that an animal lifts its hoof away from its young lest it should hurt it.
