Since 9/11, extremist Muslims have been using their faith to justify jihad.  Other Muslims have protested against what they say is a distortion of Islam. Non-Muslim people, in many cases, know only what they read in the news and tend to lump all Muslims - and all poorly understood interpretations of the Quran - together. So whose job is it to educate people - those who are misunderstanding or those who are misunderstood?

Tonight on Community Conversations, we'll talk with some local Muslims about what they see as their mission: to educate Muslims and non-Muslims alike through study and dialogue.
