Religion Communicators Council Hears from Muslim Women’s Council

The Nashville Chapter of the Religion Communicators Council (RCC) meets monthly to network and learn from each other. This month, members will visit with the Muslim Women’s Council of Tennessee.

The Muslim Women's Council was formed in 2009 after a study identified the need to establish a Muslim Women-led regional structure, according to muslimswomencouncil.org.uk. 

The council in Tennessee seeks to have meaningful engagement, build long term relationships and collaborate with those outside the Muslim community in order to make a healthy, vibrant, inclusive community for all, according to Aisha Lbhalla.

So in accordance with its mission, the Muslim Women’s Council will present to the Nashville Religion Communicators Council (RCC) at its March meeting.  Chapter president Rev. Brian Fesler is happy that this organization is coming to the table, “It’s important to foster understanding and tolerance for all religions, and I’m glad to see that Muslim women are reaching out in this manner.”

The Muslim Women’s Council will host the RCC at the Islamic Center of Nashville on March 18th for a lunch meeting.

The Religion Communicators Council (RCC), founded in 1929, is an interfaith association of religion communicators at work in print and electronic communication, marketing and public relations. Members of the RCC come from many different religions and backgrounds including Christianity, Judaism, the Baha’i Faith, Islam and Scientology, among others.
