Interfaith Council of Sonoma County
Our mission is to establish an interfaith community to promote peace, enrich our lives & serve as models for our children and others by dispelling ignorance and eliminating fear. Rather than viewing each other as unapproachable or worse yet, as the enemy, we can strive to find our commonality, create kinship and connect through love.

Join In Interfaith Friendship and Support for Sonoma County's Muslim CommunityAn alarming wave of Islamophobia is sweeping our nation. It has taken the form of hate crimes, profiling and verbal attacks. Increasingly inflammatory political rhetoric has included calls for internment camps and halting the resettlement of Muslim refugees who are fleeing war and terror. As people of many faith backgrounds living and worshiping in Sonoma County, we, the undersigned, and so many other people, are committed to working for justice, equality, inclusion and safety for all the members of our community. We are keenly aware that the scapegoating of religious minorities has never ended well - in this country or elsewhere - and we do not want to see it in our county or under our watch. We call on this community to oppose and reject Islamophobia in all its forms. We will not be silent or indifferent. We call on all people of good conscience to stand up for peaceful coexistence. We call on this community to extend the hand of friendship to our Muslim neighbors so they know they do not face this challenging time alone.
