with resources to enhance understanding, relationship-building and taking a stand for peace
Welcome to Allies and Friends Minnesota
We are an information clearinghouse for Christians seeking a response to today's challenging interreligious landscape. When we first began to pay serious attention to the public conversation about religion we discovered we knew very little about Islam - and then realized that much of what we thought we knew was wrong. We noticed we didn't actually know any Muslims personally, and that when we heard anti-Muslim comments we didn't know what to say or do.
We figured we weren't alone in our predicament. This site is our response.
Whether you are clergy, faculty, staff or a concerned individual, we hope this site will provide you with resources for first steps and then, if you are so led, to deeper learning and action.
