Faith Over Fear: Empowering Faith Leaders to Combat Islamophobia

On Announcements

Does your congregation ask questions that you can’t answer about Islam and Muslims? Do you want to be an effective ally with your Muslim neighbors? Do you want to have the right tools and training to combat the rising threat of Islamophobia?


National and local experts and practitioners will facilitate this comprehensive training to educate, network, & equip faith leaders to better advocate against a narrative of fear and divisiveness in our country.

This training is for Rabbis, Pastors, Ministers, and Imams of faith communities, as well as leaders, coordinators, and organizers of regional faith and interfaith organizations and partnerships. Please share widely with faith leaders in your networks and contact conference organizers for any questions or concerns.

Training modules will cover the following:

  • Basics of Islam and Islamophobia

  • How anti-Muslim bigotry shows up in laws and policies
  • How to locate and address our fears
  • How to respond to common misconceptions and questions about Islam and Muslims
  • Strategies for faith communities to make effective change
