Cutting-edge community building activities to promote interfaith dialog and inter-cultural friendship.
Many forces are driving us apart into fortresses of familiarity. We are naturally drawn to connect with those who are most like us. The chasms between us are growing at an alarming rate. Chasms defined by race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, gender and sexual identity, ability, education, income – so many divisions.
Salaam exists to occupy the spaces between the divisions. We bring people together.
We have well-developed community building activities that bridge the chasms and bring dissimilar groups together to find their common humanity.
Salaam’s Community Building Activities
A first-level introduction to the people of color in or near your community. For example, we bring Muslim speakers to a church to talk about their faith and answer questions.
We operate under the notion that it is possible for us to find meaningful connection outside of our groups of familiarity – a connection that is based only on our common humanity. Our ground-breaking, intentionally diverse community-group network Real Friends, Real Community is demonstrating this.
How can we be effective allies for our new BIPOC friends? Watch this space for resources.
