The Coalition Fighting Radical Gender Ideology in Schools
With the introduction of radical gender ideology material in schools as early as elementary, parents are growing more concerned about their children’s education. What’s more concerning are rules that no longer allow parents to opt their children out of material that they deem inappropriate. How can parents best voice their concerns and firmly put their foot down on issues like these?
Imam Tom Facchine invites Kareem Monib and Sameerah Munshi from the Coalition of Virtue to discuss their involvement in this fight for parental rights in school systems.

Secularism postures itself as a neutral body, but it’s anything but. Its commitments on how religion can enter the public sphere influence the way we think about our faith, and in turn interact with our scholarship and scholars. In fact, it is one of the reasons for the erosion of trust in religious authority.
Dr. Usaama al-Azami joins Imam Tom Facchine in discussing the shifts in our understanding of religious interpretation and authority and how we can better engage with our scholarship.
