ISNA Seeks Director to Lead Anti-Muslim Bigotry Campaign

(Washington DC, Jan 11, 2011) On September 7, 2010, senior religious leaders joined ISNA to gather at an Emergency Interfaith Summit in Washington, DC to make a clear statement to the public that anti-Muslim bigotry is morally wrong and debases essential American values.  They called upon America to seek its higher ideals by ending anti-Muslim bigotry.

As a continuation of this effort, the Multi-Religious Campaign Against Anti-Muslim Bigotry (The Campaign) was created as a one-year initiative led by approximately 25 faith-based organizations.  It seeks to expand upon the work that began on September 7 and also to broaden and deepen the work of religious communities to end anti-Muslim bigotry through congregations and through state and community organizations.

In addition, the Campaign will expand this work internationally by making a clear statement to both the Muslim world and the international community as a whole that religious communities in the United States are committed to ending anti-Muslim bigotry.

The Campaign seeks a Campaign Director for a one-year period, January 1 – December 31, 2011.  The Director will work out of the ISNA Office for Interfaith and Community Alliances in Washington DC on a full time basis.  Salary is commensurate with experience.  Benefits, including health care, are also provided.
