“ ربِّ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا ”

“Rabbi zidni ‘ilmaa”: “O Lord! Advance me in Knowledge”

(Surah 20: Ta Ha: 114)

MOTTO: The motto of The Salaam Network (TSN) is “Striving to Make Our Beloved Community of Louisville Whole.” The word “Salaam” is an Arabic word (“Shalom” in Hebrew) generally translated as “Peace” but it also refers to Wholeness, Safety, and Well-Being.

MISSION: TSN is an educational network which aims at creating harmony and wholeness in a highly diverse and divided city through dissemination of accurate information about those who are seen as “The Other” or as different from us. Islamophobia and other forms of discrimination including racism, sexism, classism, and exclusivism on grounds of religion, ethnicity, culture and political affiliation, have contributed to the growing “us versus them” mentality. TSN’s mission is to build a knowledge-based foundation for an all-inclusive community which is reflected in a video made by its Art Director, celebrating the cultural diversity of Louisville: https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=5h0pG53kY98
