3/18/2019: It's all about breaking barriers over breaking bread. "Eat with Muslims" held its first dinner in New York City Monday night.
"It's an opportunity to get to know what Islam is and what Muslims believe," said Ilays Aden, co-founder of Eat with Muslims. "To eat and to enjoy each other's company while building community I think that's the best way to fight against Islamaphobia and this idea of being afraid of Muslims."
Aden is Somali-American. She felt compelled to change the perception of Muslims.
