CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — Residents dropped by the library to meet their Muslim neighbors. It’s the fourth event in the past few years.

The event focused on the pilgrimage to Mecca. The goal is for people to understand the significance behind the hajj.

Organizers say the biggest benefit is for people to meet their Muslim neighbors. It was for Americans of all ages to come and bond over similarities, not differences.
