While the motive behind this shocking attack is still unclear, we strongly assert that such actions have no place, no validity and no support in our society and community and we categorically abhor and reject such senseless violence, which cannot be justified by any motivation.

Listening to Those We Serve
The entire experience of planning a series of seminars with ING was inspirational. They did an amazing job. The ING team welcomed input along the way which allowed each session to be even better than the one before it. We will continue to work with ING as I am confident that they will continue to provide value in our work.
City Human Resources Director
I thought the ING seminar, “Preventing and Responding to Anti-Muslim Bigotry,” was an extremely valuable training for law enforcement, especially in today’s day and age with all the misunderstandings and misperceptions of the Muslim community…I feel this training will help my staff and I in developing better relationships and in responding to the needs of our community. I highly recommend this training to others.
