We Are Better Together
The enemy is fear. We think it is hate; but it is really fear.” -Gandhi
In the early morning silence of a 2017 summer day, an explosive device shook the walls of Dar Al Farooq Mosque in Bloomington. Those who created the device later admitted that they intended to scare and intimidate Muslims.
What they intended for evil became an opportunity for good as word spread among people of faith. Within a few hours 100 interfaith leaders held a press conference to stand in solidarity against hate and violence. Three days later, 1,000 people gathered in a field behind the mosque to send a similar message.
Scratch the surface of Minnesota’s multifaith community and you will find hundreds of examples like this one, of people and groups coming together across differences to bring healing and hope in the face of violence and other areas of brokenness, like poverty, homelessness, and racism.
Now imagine a network that supports this work. Envision an intuitive, interactive website that serves as a hub—collecting and distributing resources, connections, workshops and more. Picture an annual convention where we come together to network, learn and get re-inspired to continue the work.
MnMN exists to connect individual faith leaders and communities to needed resources; support new and existing efforts, and help rebuild and repair challenges facing communities.
