A Training Deferred

When COVID hit, we postponed our annual Cool Islam training. Below is a preserved memory of these first months after COVID changed a lot in our lives.


April 2020—

We are working on our first Zoom YAE training, so check back here soon!

Dear Friends,

We’re very sorry but we are postponing our training until the COVID 19 danger is lessened, enabling us to go back to having trainings. We will pick new day as soon as we are able.

In the meantime, do encourage your friends to follow us on Instagram and Facebook, and for anyone who has registered or does register for this training, we will protect your registration information and let you know for when the training is rescheduled, so you will just let us know if you can make the new day, no need to re-register.

Keep an eye on this page in case we put together a project for youth and families to work with each other youth as a team remotely, to help elected officials and others see the unfortunate connection between the climate crisis and the spread to and among humans of COVID 19 so they can take more effective action.

Take care of each other and keep your spirits up. Thanks for all you are already doing.


Our next Training: (See Note Above!)
Saturday, April 11, 2020—Beaverton, Oregon—Registration is now open!

Note: If you are a teen who can come without your parents, that’s great, but please consider encouraging them to come anyway and attend the parents’ meeting and final presentation, so they can better support your activism.

Cool Islam will be our host for this training for families of all backgrounds. Congregation P’nai Or Jewish Renewal of Portland and its Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World) Committee are co-sponsoring this training.
