Know Your Neighbor: Multifaith Encounters Helps Americans
Learn About and Engage in Interfaith Work

ING’s Know Your Neighbor: Multifaith Encounters program is a coalition that brings together some of the most prominent and effective organizations involved in interfaith work, distributing resources and fomenting collaboration. Our webinars in particular allow interfaith organizations to share best practices and inspire other groups to take on similar efforts, helping to expand the reach of interfaith cooperation in the United States. One recent webinar participant had this to say:

“Thank you for hosting this beautiful panel. I found it informative because it helped me to break the isolation I am experiencing in attempting to do this work in the small community I live in. The webinar was great and practical—loved the emphasis on ‘What YOU Can Do’!

“Meet a Muslim” and Other Ways to Address
Islamophobia in Your Community

In response to rising Islamophobia, “Meet a Muslim” events are now growing in popularity. On February 22nd, ING’s Know Your Neighbor coalition hosted a webinar moderated by ING’s Interfaith Coordinator Kate Chance to share ideas, advice, and inspiration for others to host similar events in local communities. We spoke with Mona Haydar, Catherine Orsborn, Moina Shaiq, Shakila Ahmad, and ING Content Director Ameena Jandali.
