Colin Christopher is the Executive Director of Green Muslims, a Washington, D.C.-based organization with the mission of helping their community live in the environmental spirit of Islam. The organization’s ‘Our Deen is Green’ Youth Outdoor Education Program offers a range of field trips to places like the Chesapeake Bay, local farms and conserved lands to demonstrate real-life examples of how Islam and the environment are entwined.
In our interview, we asked Christopher what the Chesapeake Bay means to him. Watch the video above to hear his response.
