Review for Salaam Network Inc, Louisville, KY, USA
Times of crisis bring out the best and the worst in us, and in trying times our true character shines for all the world to see. The Salaam Network was birthed in just such times. In the face of a rising tide of divisive rhetoric and anti Islamic ideology in the U. S. and beyond, that challenged the fundamental vision of tolerance, respect for religious plurality and cultural diversity, Riffat Hassan brought together a number of scholars and religious leaders. Through thoughtful and scholarly presentations in houses of worship and classrooms the Salaam Network has sown seeds of understanding and offered opportunities for dialogue and mutual appreciation between disparate religious groups across Louisville. I have been privileged to collaborate by making connections with Roman Catholic communities and institutions. From my personal experience it is clear that the Salaam Network has greatly enriched and changed the face of our local community.
