Hoping to encourage interfaith dialogue, an Islamic organization will unveil a pair of billboards in Minneapolis this week.

The Minnesota chapter of the Islamic Circle of North America plans to unveil the billboards Friday, the eve of the Islamic New Year.

The billboards will be placed along Hiawatha Avenue in south Minneapolis and Central Avenue on the North Side.

They are part of a nationwide multimedia campaign that also includes placing posters on buses and subways in other big cities.
