My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Salaam Network Inc, Louisville, KY, USA
The Salaam Network has provided a wonderful opportunity for community engagement on important social and religious matters. As a professor of Islamic Studies, I am aware of just how much need there is for public spaces where people can engage in informed discussions about Islam, the Middle East, and religion in our world today. This is something that we can provide in the university setting, but most community members are not able to take college classes on these topics. The Salaam Network helps fill that gap and bridge the cultural divide between the academy and the public.
The programs at The Salaam Network have been well attended by a variety of people. I often encourage my students to attend the Network events and I always look forward to see what future programs they are planning. They have become a valuable resource to the area around Louisville. Their work is urgently needed in the social and political context in which we live today. We all want to live in more open and educated communities; The Salaam Network is helping to build those communities.
