We’re leveraging our beliefs to create sustainable change in the communities around us.

Change Through Engagement

In 2021, despite COVID, our programs and advocacy efforts engaged thousands of Texans in rallying together to change the world around us. Together, we brought faith communities together to advocate for policies related to child welfare, food insecurity and religious freedom. Inspired by our faith, we crossed boundaries, reached out to those with whom we differ, and sought dialogue on the issues that bring us together.

"And do good, for Allah certainly loves the doers of good."Holy Quran (Al-Baqarah:195)
