Presentations and Screenings

Beginning in the summer of 2012, playwright Jamil Khoury delivered over fifty Mosque Alert related presentations at the institutions and organizations listed below.  These presentations typically included screenings of videos created to serve the play's development, most notably the compilation video "Meet Mosque Alert."  The often robust, sometimes contentious conversations that occurred during these presentations helped shape and inform Khoury's writing of the play.
