In a release, the event organizers said, "Ambassador Stevens played a vital role in supporting the Libyan people during their struggle against the former dictator Gaddafi and was a strong presence in the most recent months in Libya. We stand together as a community to make it known that those who took part in these tragic events do not represent the Libyan people nor do they represent Muslims worldwide."
The Sept. 20 event is cosponsored by the Graduate Muslim Students Association at UD, as well as the Islamic Society of Delaware, Zakat Foundation of America, Tarbiyah School of Delaware, Islamic Academy of Delaware, Masjid Al Kauthar, Glasgow Muslim Community Center, Masjid Isa lbn-e-Maryam, Circle of Hands and the Delaware Valley Speakers Bureau.
