On the Road to Sakinah
Gathering Community to Stop Domestic Violence - October 2011 Events
October is domestic violence awareness month. Events are being scheduled all over the country to address the issue of domestic violence. Project Sakinah is organizing community events in Columbus and Chicago to brainstorm and plan the necessary steps to bring change in our culture and attitude toward domestic violence. For a list of events organized by Project Sakinah and its affiliates, please check
"Events" section on our team page.
You may also submit your event to be included in this list. Please email us at:
firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if you are not able to organize an event in your community, at least ask your imam to deliver a khutbah against domestic violence.

How YOU CAN Help? Project Sakinah is YOUR project and it will only be successful with YOUR participation and support. As we organize local teams in cities and towns, we could use help from just about anybody. We need people from all walks of life. You can help by organizing or publicizing an event. You can also help through your writing. One very important way to help us is through donations. None of this work can
be sustained and productive without continuous financial support. Please
Yasmin Ali and Hannah Tyler took a Step! We are humbled by Allah's
blessing us with two dynamic and very committed community organizers in Chicago and Columbus. Yasmin joined Project Sakinah during the ISNA Convention this past July. She has taken
on the role of lead organizer in Chicago for our upcoming events on October 23rd. Hannah joined Project Sakinah last month and she is playing a major role as the lead organizer for upcoming events in Columbus. May Allah (swt) reward them immensely for their efforts and services to our community.
