INCLUSIVE COMMUNITIES COALITION

The Inclusive Communities Coalition (ICC) is a network of Muslim community leaders as well as educators, refugee service-providers, law-enforcement officials and interfaith clergy from the broader western Massachusetts community. At a time when anti-Muslim sentiment and fears about Muslims are simultaneously increasing, we believe it is important for Muslims in western Massachusetts and public sector officials to engage with each other around mutual concerns. We hope to come together as a core-group every 6-8 weeks to exchange ideas and develop programming to address areas of concern. Our first meeting will take place in September. ICC objectives:

  • Improve communication between public sector officials and Muslim community representatives in western Massachusetts
  • Identify areas of concern (bullying, discrimination, profiling, radicalization, etc.) and develop programs to address them
