We’re Hiring!

On Announcements

On September 7, 2010, senior religious leaders gathered at an Emergency Interfaith Summit in Washington, DC to make a clear statement to the public that anti-Muslim bigotry is morally wrong and debases essential American values. They called upon America to seek its higher ideals by ending anti-Muslim bigotry.

As a continuation of this effort, Shoulder to Shoulder was created, and is currently comprised of 35 religious denominations and interfaith organizations at the national level. We seek to not only continue the national witness and work that began in September 2010, but also to broaden and deepen the work of religious communities to end anti-Muslim bigotry through local congregations and community organizations.

Shoulder to Shoulder is now hiring two part-time, temporary positions; descriptions are posted below.  Please email Catherine.Orsborn@s2scampaign.org with inquiries and to apply.
