Share Faith, Culture, & Domestic Violence: Immigrant & Refugee Women

Event Details

Purpose: What better time than now to further diversify Indianapolis and further a deeper, more personal understanding of these unique situations of domestic violence against immigrant and refugee women. There has been a continued increase in the number of immigrants who are victims of domestic violence and require specialized support services that take into consideration cultural and religious beliefs. With more focused sessions on larger cultural and religious communities in the city, our goal is to be able to provide a more personal understanding of how best to support, understand, and respond to these situations.  MAI has organized a full day of programming that will offer domestic violence providers, social workers, physical and mental health providers, law enforcement, the legal community, and the general public interested in learning more with valuable training and skills. The tentative schedule below provides more information regarding workshop topics and sessions:

Muslim Alliance of Indiana


...advocate, collaborate, empower, engage, serve


After the events of 9/11, mis­in­for­ma­tion regard­ing Mus­lims and Islam rapidly spread through­out the nation and Indi­ana alike.  A small group of lead­ers within the Mus­lim Hoosier com­mu­nity real­ized that the most effec­tive path to dis­pel these mis­con­cep­tions was to rally Mus­lim Hoosiers together and to encour­age civic engagement.  From this small group, the Mus­lim Alliance of Indi­ana was born. 


Since its incep­tion, the MAI has worked consistently for an Indi­ana that not only ensures social jus­tice for Mus­lims, but for all Hoosiers.  We rec­og­nize that in bring­ing Mus­lims together, we reignite those tenets of our faith that lead us to serve and to ded­i­cate our­selves to a bet­ter world.  We are com­mit­ted to devel­op­ing high-quality edu­ca­tional, outreach, and social, pro­grams designed to fos­ter coop­er­a­tion and under­stand­ing both with other reli­gious com­mu­ni­ties as well as civic and ser­vice organizations. 


As the Mus­lim Alliance of Indi­ana cel­e­brates its sec­ond decade of ser­vice, our focus areas are: Access to Justice, Civic Engagement, and Interfaith Cooperation
