Learn more about this program.
This program expands the educational outreach work of ING by partnering with interfaith organizations and delivering content in the context of America’s religious diversity. Interfaith panels include a Muslim presenter with one or more speakers representing Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism or Hinduism. The student and adult audiences enjoy the interactive dialogue and especially the opportunity to ask the panelists candid questions. For many, it is the first time they have ever met a Buddhist, Hindu, Jew or Muslim. To learn more about available programs for each institution or to schedule a panel, click on the following links:

Bullying Prevention in Schools
ING’s Bullying Prevention Program consists of workshops for Muslim students and parents on the following:
- Awareness and promotion of the federally sponsored Stop Bullying Now Program, at stopbullying.gov.
- Empowerment training for students and parents on their rights and responsibilities in schools in relation to teasing, harassment, and bullying issues.
- Self-esteem and confidence building training on answering difficult questions about Muslims and their faith that are often asked by Americans of other faiths out of genuine interest or concern due to negative portrayals of Muslims in the media.
