From the website:

Fear of the unknown and ‘the other’ is a major cause for the worldwide increase in Islamophobia, argues Martha Nussbaum, professor of Law and Ethics at the University of Chicago. An evening with Nussbaum on the occasion of the release of the Dutch translation of her new book The New Religious Intolerance: Overcoming the Politics of Fear in an Anxious Age. In her book, Nussbaum analyses a large number of current examples of intolerance towards religious minorities, particularly towards Muslims. What do we need to do to overcome intolerance? Martha Nussbaum will shine her light on this topic during her lecture, an interview and the questions put forward to her by the public.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
