My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Salaam Network Inc, Louisville, KY, USA
Since the inception of The Salaam Network I have attended all its programs and presentations. I have done so because I support its aims and objectives i.e., to overcome the divisiveness evident in the community by removing the misconceptions (stereotypes) about Islam and other religions and cultures, minimizing hatred and creating acceptance of the “other” through proper education. It is my considered opinion that only through imparting sound education, can one eliminate ignorance which is the breeding ground of prejudice and bigotry.
The Salaam Network has world-class scholars from the three Abrahamic faiths - Judaism, Christianity, Islam. It also has teachers with outstanding artistic and spiritual abilities, who are fully capable of spreading the message implicit in the word “Salaam” which means Peace, Tranquility and Wholeness.
The scope of TSN’s educational programs presented thus far is so broad that there is take-home for every participant. Its learned presenters have shed light on many issues which are relevant in our times. They present a variety of perspectives with open-mindedness which opens the way to understanding and accepting persons of other religions, cultures, and ethnicities. TSN programs have shown the beauty of diversity and how it enriches the community.
I give my highest commendation to TSN and its exceptional team of educators.
