Faith Over Fear

Posted on

Shoulder to Shoulder is a national coalition-based campaign of religious denominations and faith-based organizations and communities that are committed to ending discrimination and violence against Muslims in the United States by equipping, connecting, and mobilizing faith leaders to effectively take action. Shoulder to Shoulder offers Faith Over Fear trainings where participants learn effective strategies to better advocate against a narrative of fear and divisiveness in our country.

As an interfaith organization, WVIRM is committed to open dialogue among all peoples. That is why we are attending the Faith Over Fear training in Charleston, WV on December 2, 2019 at Temple Israel.
