This training, organized by Shoulder to Shoulder, is designed for faith leaders, lay leaders, and multifaith or faith-based organizational leaders committed to countering anti-Muslim discrimination in their communities. We’ll share up-to-date research, resources, tools, and messaging to be stronger, strategic, and more effective actors in shaping our nation toward a greater vision – where all people, no matter their religious or cultural background, are treated with fairness, dignity and respect.
The Faith Over Fear training will cover the following focus areas: understanding & unpacking anti-Muslim bigotry & Islamophobia, the underlying dynamics in communications & conflict, messaging for change (what we say and how we say it), deep-dive in allyship, an example of challenging Islamophobia through the arts, and strategies for engagement & change.
