About this event

Music for the program will be provided by members of the Naperville First Ward, followed by remarks from several faith groups and elected officials.

Press Release:
Naperville, Illinois, 10/07/2023- The Naperville Interfaith Leaders Association (NILA), a group of religious leaders from a variety of traditions, expresses its strong and unequivocal condemnation of an event discovered in a recently surfaced video that depicted a teenager from Naperville, Illinois, engaging in the hateful act of burning a copy of the Holy Quran, the central religious text of Islam. At NILA, we believe that we, as people of faith, are called to live harmoniously and work together as a community for the common good. We strive to be inclusive of all religions, fully realizing that for the good of humanity, all diversity within our community should be celebrated and respected. Therefore, hateful acts, such as the one depicted in the recently released video, are not only hurtful to our Muslim brothers and sisters but are also a threat to all faith traditions.

Hate, in any form, has no place in Naperville; hate has no place in our society.
