Muhammad Ali, a devout Muslim, fought a costly legal battle to recognize his religious commitment to peace. His refusal to join the military during the Vietnam War was a call heard worldwide that peace, not war, was the answer to our conflicts. What does it mean to be committed to peace today? How do we maintain our commitment to religious freedom and peace in a world where war is prevalent? What is the role of our entire community in supporting religious freedom? Please join our discussion led by a panel of University students and scholar-activists.
