Happy New Year!

January 1, 2023

Greetings of Peace:

As we begin the new year after a challenging three years of the pandemic, we pray that 2023 brings relief from these and the many other challenges we face locally, nationally, and globally. The Islamic tradition teaches that with every hardship comes ease, and we take solace in believing that things will get better, Inshallah – God willing.

We also pray and hope for a more peaceful, healthy, and unified country and world in this upcoming year. The pandemic has shown us that we are all interconnected, and that what afflicts some of us affects all of us. We have seen how we can overcome our challenges collectively, and that we are stronger when we work together.

At ING, this is the foundation of our work every day: to counter the bigotry that divides us; to build a more harmonious community based upon mutual respect and understanding, and to work together for a world where everyone can thrive.

We are deeply grateful for the support you have provided us and look forward to continuing to partner with you as we work together to foster a more equitable and inclusive society. If you missed any of our year-end updates, here they are:

-Support teachers who inspire learning about diverse groups

-Support corporate employee resource groups building inclusive workspaces

-Support police departments working with communities to combat hate

-Support healthcare workers providing culturally competent services

-Support Muslim teens preventing bullying through education

We look forward to working with you this year.
