Ghosts of Sugar Land examines the radicalization of a young American Muslim. Through interviews with his friends, the documentary tells the story of “Mark,” who converted to Islam before college and became radicalized shortly thereafter. A number of years ago, through Facebook posts, “Mark” stated that he crossed over from Turkey to the “Islamic State.” His friends from Sugar Land, Texas—all masked to protect their identities—hypothesize about what may have happened that led their friend to join ISIS. Ghosts of Sugar Land won the Nonfiction Jury Award for Short Film at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.

10th Annual Muslim-Jewish Roundtable

This is our 10th year of coordinating a Muslim Jewish Christmas, an event where members of the Muslim community and members of the Jewish community get together. This year, there will be two simultaneous Muslim-Jewish Christmas Events in Houston with several more Muslim and Jewish organizations participating.

The theme for this year is “Standing Up for One Another.” As division and hatred become more common in our communities, honest conversation is something that we must do. As both of our communities are at the receiving end of hate, it’s important for us to come together to better understand one another.

The goal of this event has always been very simple – to come together on a day when we don’t have any other commitments and talk about our similarities and differences surrounding a specific theme.
