Will you join us in peacebuilding?

December 15, 2020

The future is brighter when we work together!

Salam alaykum/Greetings of Peace,

Will you renew your support of ING this year? Help take us to the next milestone.

Experts in the fields of politics and culture all agree that the most immediate solution to the extreme polarization in the country is dialogue among diverse groups, and there is no larger issue underlying the polarization than the race issue and the question of who belongs in America–issues we address at ING.

In 1993 when we first started, ING’s work in increasing Islamic literacy was relevant in the aftermath of the first Persian Gulf War;

After 9/11, ING’s work became urgent in the context of interfaith relations; and,

Today, our work is necessary in the context of bigotry against all marginalized groups in America!

ING speakers’ bureaus and online curriculum are increasing both religious and cultural literacy and protecting the nation’s values of pluralism and equality, while preventing hate and harm–not just against Muslim Americans, but against all marginalized groups. View our latest 2020 Year-End Report.

We’ve learned from doing the work of education and engagement that the fate of Muslims in human rights is directly tied to the fate of other groups: Black, Brown and even White, and that the only way forward towards peace and the preservation of our democracy is by living out the value of e pluribus unum (out of many, one)!

Please help us expand what we do best by investing in our work of education and engagement before the end of this year.* No amount is too small.
