DALLAS, TX (Oct. 25, 2016) – Islamic Circle of North America, Dallas (ICNA) has launched an outreach campaign around DFW area to convey the message of Islam in response to the presidential election campaign’s speeches and debates, which have fueled hate and intolerance, particularly racism among the people of United States.
