GainPeace - ICNA Launches Outreach Campaign in Kansas City

(02/08/2010, Kansas City, KS) –Islamic Circle of North America, Kansas City and Gain Peace, an out-reach project of Islamic Circle of North America, are launching a bold venture in its public awareness campaign by placing ads about Islam using various venues.Starting Monday (Feb 8th), the I-435 South highway near ISGKC Masjid (Mosque) will be beautified with an Islamic Billboard inviting the people to learn about Islam. Our non-Muslims neighbors can call the Gain Peace Hotline: 1-800-662-ISLAM begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 1-800-662-ISLAM end_of_the_skype_highlighting  to get their questions answered about Islam. This north facing billboard unit reaches ~53,000  people travelling daily on I-435 South highway. The billboard will remain for four weeks, God willing. During the billboard campaign, our larger KC community will also be listening to the message of Islam via KMBZ 980 AM radio. The radio campaign is expected to reach a total population of 1.2M people, God willing.

The invitation to listen to the message of Islam does not stop there. ICNAKC will be mailing out "One-Minute Islam Flier" to 10,000 households in the zip codes: 64133, 64136, and 64138 with the help of Valpak, encouraging the people to learn about Islam through our hotline, God willing.

In addition, the Kansas City Star newspaper will be publishing our "invitation" to learn the message of Islam for a month. God willing, the outreach campaign will then culminate with an OPEN HOUSE to pass on the message directly to our non-Muslim neighbors and to give them an opportunity to clarify misconceptions about Islam.
There are 1.5 Billion Muslims around the world and 8 million in United States. Muslims believe in Prophet Muhammad as the last messenger from God. Islam is the fastest growing faith in USA with 45, 000 new converts to Islam each year, mostly women.

Islamic Circle of North America, parent organization of Gain Peace, is one of the largest, non-profit, independent, grass roots organizations of Muslim Americans with twenty five chapters and affiliates in USA. Its mission is to promote proper understanding of Islam and Muslims
