Fathia Absie and Ilays Aden want you to come to dinner. The Somali-American filmmaker and writer is co-founder of a Seattle- based project called Eat With Muslims, where Muslim families host dinners for people of all faiths and cultures.
Eat With Muslims is an organization committed to building bridges between neighbors of different cultures and faiths by bringing people together in comfortable setting to foster an open dialogue with members of the Muslim community.
