Donate to NewGround

In spite of significant commonalities in religious tradition and a shared experience of discrimination in the United States,  Muslims and Jews tend to have inaccurate stereotypes about the other that are reinforced by the larger trends of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia in the United States.  The strained relationship between the communities inhibits their ability to work together on combating discrimination and other important areas of shared concern.  

NewGround’s mandate is to provide Muslims and Jews with the listening and conflict resolution skills to break down barriers and enable them to work together for the common good of all and for the shared issues that face both communities. Please consider a donation to support NewGround's important work.
