Review for Salaam Network Inc, Louisville, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I became involved with The Salaam Network in 2016 after attending one of their first interfaith presentations discussing the common beliefs among the major religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. At a time when there was so much hatred,mistrust and Islamaphobia in our community, and my family and friends had suffered from anti-Muslim attacks, I found it a wonderful approach to educate people about what we have in COMMON rather than what divides us. The Salaam Network presents quality factual programs discussing the common traditions in the three major faith traditions as well as other religions, and seeks to bring peace through understanding, to reduce fear of the "other" by bringing people together to learn about what we have in common, to put a face on the "other", to see each other as people who live and love similarly to each other, more than we are different from each other. It is a beautiful thing.

The Salaam Network is a volunteer organization and provides educational programs throughout the community with donations from the community and an occaisional small grant, and we would like to be able to do more fundraising and also to increase our educational offerinngs online to reach more people in the community. Since mid-2016 we have presented numerous programs across the community to churches, synagogues, mosques, libraries, community groups, schools, law enforcement and even the military groups, all interested in learning more about Islam and its relationship to the other religious traditions. We hope that by learning more about each other, the fear of the unknown decreases, the understanding of each other reduces the fear and misunderstanding which underlies the hate we have seen in our community and makes our enitre beloved community more "whole".

Review for UNICEF USA, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

How do criticize an organization that spends 89-90% of its income on services? The internet email and Facebook posts that target this organization are incorrect and shameful.
