Streetcar Debate: Should the New York Islamic Cultural Center be Built Near Ground Zero? – Public Debate Dec. 8
EDITOR’S NOTE: This event is free and open to the public.
Should the New York Islamic Cultural Center be built near Ground Zero? This question has been the topic of much debate for many months. With everyone across the nation weighing in on the discussion, it comes as no surprise the Rutgers-Newark community wants its say, too.
In the first of a three-part series of public debates called the Streetcar Debate Series, Rutgers-Newark students, faculty and staff will engage in spirited discourse concerning the pros and cons of the mosque-at-Ground-Zero issue.
