The ‘Cup of Tea’ national movement was designed to stop the growing threat of racism against Muslims in Norway. According to the campaign, there was a growing distrust and distance between the native population and the immigrant Muslim community in Norway and the divide was growing by the day. In January of 2017 in response to the Muslim Ban, and for the first time, every month, members of Dar Al-Hijrah and families from other religious traditions get together in-house at Dar Al-Hijrah to have Solidarity Cup of Tea and share their feelings about community life together. What started as a handful of interfaith and governmental participants soon became hundreds of neighbors and partners getting closer and building relationships of trust and fellowship.
Join us every third Saturday of the month for a Cup of Tea!
