We harness the power of connection to bridge differences, honor shared humanity, and foster interfaith collaboration.

We are driven by the belief that through listening to one another's stories, Muslim and Jewish women can find common ground and work together toward a future that amplifies minority women's voices and where our shared values supersede our differences.

The Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom fosters a network of Muslim and Jewish women who, guided by common values, mobilize our larger communities to cultivate a more pluralistic, equitable, and democratic societies.

We work in three distinct areas:

RELATIONSHIP & CAPACITY BUILDING

#connect

We provide a framework in which Muslim and Jewish women come together to learn from and with one another. Through this process, they hone the skillsets necessary to lead others in transformative conversations.

ADVOCACY/
EDUCATION

#educate

We train women to understand and challenge stigmatizing narratives and build alliances that strengthen efforts aimed at inclusion, anti-bias, and support for marginalized communities.

COMMUNITY & CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

#engage

We promote interfaith cooperation through direct service efforts that build healthy and inclusive communities while strengthening the capacity of local and minority leaders.

Muslim and Jewish women united to build diverse, inclusive, and equitable communities.
