December 16, 2022
In this episode, we’re bringing you a panel from our recent Poverty Cure Summit.
The Poverty Cure Summit provides an opportunity for participants to listen to scholars, human service providers, and community leaders address the most critical issues we face today that can either exacerbate or alleviate poverty. These speakers will join panel discussions to discuss the legal, economic, social, and technological issues pertaining to both domestic (U.S.) and global poverty. Rooted in foundational principles of anthropology, politics, natural law, and economics, participants gained a deeper understanding of the root causes of poverty and identified practical means to reduce it and promote human flourishing.
This panel examines charity in the Muslim tradition.
The featured panelists are:
Ali Salman, founding member & CEO, Islam and Liberty Network.
Mahmoud El-Gamal, Professor of Economics and Statistics, Baker Institute Rice Faculty Scholar, Chair in Islamic Economics, Finance, and Management, Rice University
Moderator: Abdullah bin Hamid Ali, Founding Director of the Lamppost Education Initiative
