Hurma Project

Grant Type: General Support

Duration: Jan 1, 2019 - Dec 31, 2019

Organization Overview:

The Hurma Project is committed to upholding the sacred inviolability of each person who is present in our Muslim spaces by elucidating the special responsibilities of those holding power and authority and by educating those who are vulnerable about their God-given dignity and rights.

Request Overview:

Hurma Project will continue its work to address predatory behavior, abuse of religious authority, neglect of duty to protect, and other related harmful behaviors in Muslim communities. Following an inaugural training and convening in 2018 led by Dr. Ingrid Mattson and a collective of scholars and community advocates, the project will use Pillars support to explore and plan the best methods to publicly disseminate learnings and continue the development of long-term partnerships.
