The Shoulder to Shoulder Campaign is a national multifaith coalition of religious denominations and faith organizations committed to addressing, countering, and preventing anti-Muslim discrimination and violence in the United States. Shoulder to Shoulder equips, connects, and mobilizes faith communities (with a special focus on our member denominations, clergy, laity, and community partner organizations) to be strategic partners in challenging anti-Muslim bias and discrimination in the United States. It is only when Americans beyond the Muslim community see this as a shared issue that affects us all that we will see broad change on this issue.

Faith Over Fear: Countering Anti-Muslim Discrimination

Since 2018, the Shoulder to Shoulder Campaign has worked with national and local partners and leading experts to develop and offer the “Faith Over Fear” training programs. Faith Over Fear reduces and counters anti-Muslim bias, discrimination, and violence in the United States by working with faith and community leaders to:

  1. Improve skills (and confidence) to speak against anti-Muslim rhetoric and discrimination
  2. Increase community discussions to effectively counter anti-Muslim discrimination
  3. Build stronger local multi-religious networks

Faith Over Fear includes the following topics:

  1. Analyze Islamophobia and anti-Muslim bigotry in the United States by examining the historical context and understanding the contemporary challenges;
  2. Communicate for Change by learning how to transform a demeaning culture filled with untruthful and harmful notions by empowering communities to make meaning of their shared values based on accurate and generative language; and
  3. Implement Engagement Strategies by utilizing proven tactics to dilute anti-Muslim bigotry while promoting peaceful coexistence.

Skills: Civil Dialogue, Community Engagement, Empathy, Interfaith Cooperation, Media Literacy, Religious Literacy

Time: Non-Credit 6 hours

Level: adult education, high school, college, graduate, professional development
