Local Muslim and Mormon communities will join together with representatives of various faith communities Thursday evening to talk about refugees and migration.

The Inland Empire Chapter of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are hosting a symposium titled, “Refugees, Dignity and Humanity: Perspectives of the Great Religious Founders,” according to a news release from Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.

The event, which will look at how the great religious founders viewed the subject of migration and the rights of the oppressed, is set for 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 3850 N. Waterman Avenue, in San Bernardino.

San Bernardino Mayor Carey Davis and Police Chief Jarrod Burguan are expected to attend the event.

“We are honored to stand alongside Mayor Davis, Chief Burguan and our friends of the inter-faith community to discuss a timely and critical subject,” said Faheem Ahmad, president of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Los Angeles Inland Empire Chapter, in the news release.

“Every religious founder preached a message of compassion and humanity for those who flee persecution,” he continued. “Those messages are sorely needed right now, and San Bernardino, a diverse and vibrant city, is the perfect place to come together.”

Azhar Haneef, national vice president of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, will be the keynote speaker, and other inter-faith leaders from the Jewish, Catholic, Presbyterian, Muslim and Bahai communities will be on hand for comment, according to the release.
