The Women’s Auxiliary of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Queensland held their annual Peace Symposium on the 15th of June 2019 at Bait-ul Masroor Mosque in Stockleigh.
More than two hundred women came together to discuss how women play important roles as nation builders in an effort towards establishing peace within society.
Senator for Queensland, Clair Moore; Brisbane City Councillor, Kim Marx; Aboriginal Elder, Aunty Heather Castledine; CEO Access Community Services, Gail Kerr; Logan and Brisbane City Councillors, Australian Federal Police representatives and Presidents and members of various community organisations were some of the key dignitaries attending the event.
Keynote faith speakers were Judith Gibbons, from the Uniting Church in Toowoomba; Prakruthi Gururaj, Multicultural Ambassador; and Sabah Janud, representative of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Women’s Community of Queensland.
As part of this annual event, the women’s auxiliary present donations to various community organisations every year. This year, the Refugee Association of Queensland, and Logan Helping Hands were recipients of $2,000 in donations from the auxiliary.
