On June 6, 2003 the Chicago Tribune reported that "on Saturday, the Chicago area's Ismaili community plans to celebrate [tolerance and pluralism]... at the first Chicago conference held in honor of the Prophet Muhammad's birthday, titled 'Pluralism and the Islamic Mosaic'... The event, to be held at the Midwest Conference Center in west suburban Northlake, is part of a series of seminars being held in five American cities in May and June. The goal is to emphasize the teachings of the prophet that promote cultural understanding in a climate that many Muslims fear has become increasingly intolerant."
