Sponsored by the Hampshire Mosque Board of Directors 

When:  Sunday, April 28 from 2-5 pm
Where:  451 Russell St, Hadley

Attendees will have a chance to tour the mosque, learn more about its activities, ask questions, and meet with members of the Muslim community.
 
Musa Simon, a member of the Hampshire Mosque Board of Directors, says the event is “a simple way for us to build bridges of understanding and mutual respect with our fellow community members, and to embody the guidance of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, who taught us: ‘By Allah, none of you truly believes, until you love for your neighbor what you love for yourself’.” 
 
Visit My Mosque Day started in the United Kingdom in 2015, and quickly became popular across Europe, Australia, and the U.S.  Last year more than 20 mosques in Massachusetts participated in this annual event.  This is the first year Hampshire Mosque is able to participate, having recently opened the doors to its new location on Route 9 in Hadley.  The Islamic Society of Western Massachusetts, located in West Springfield, will also be holding an Open Mosque Day on this same date.

When: Sunday, March 28, 6 pm
Where: 44 Bircham Street, Springfield

What: This postcard writing project serves two purposes - one is to educate low-turnout voters and encourage them to vote, and the other is to investigate effective postcarding efforts to help refine messaging and targeting.  The previous Sister District Action Network postcard experiment, which we participated in, yielded very useful data. 

From the organizer: “For newcomers - here's the drill:  I purchase prepaid postcards from the post office and create graphics which I print on the postcards. You all reimburse me at $.42 each for the postcards,  postage and the ink I use for printing.  I provide the postcards, pens, scripts and addresses, and also some snacks.  You are welcome to bring some snacks too.  And if you have them, bring some extra highlighters.  It really sparks up the graphics.”
