My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Salaam Network Inc, Louisville, KY, USA
Fariba Nowrouzi Kashan, Ph.D.
At this time, more than ever we need to bring people together regardless of their beliefs to stablish peace and justice in our community. I am a Muslim woman who has received my PhD from the University of Louisville in Applied Mathematics. Currently I am a faculty member at Kentucky State University. Aside from work, I have also been a leader and facilitator of Islamic education for the local Iranian community (youth and adult) for almost twenty years. Over the past several years, I have been pleased to be involved with The Salaam Network (TSN) and work as one of its core member to build an understanding bridge between different beliefs.
Islamophobia is one of the largest problems that divides our nation and communities. The best solution for this problem is educate people (Muslim and non-Muslim) about Islam based on the holy book Quran and life of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) without any prejudgments and from multiple perspectives. TSN has been extremely effective in spreading awareness against islamophobia in Kentucky and abroad by offering free education classes. TSN outreach has offered many discussions groups, student panels, lectures, and workshops at venues of various religious followings and academic standings.
All conducted programs and presentations by The Salaam Network are listed and can be found in https://salaamnetwork.org/programs/. It verifies that TSN has been improved each year since 2016 by providing free educational opportunities that highlight the common values among the different religions, especially amongst three Abrahamic religions
TSN has worked very hard since 2016 to contribute toward building a culture of knowledge and dialogue in our city. I am sure that TSN would be able to do much more to bring harmony to our diverse community with more support. When we work all together, TSN’s contribution can help to make Louisville a city with a high understanding of culture and community.
