EHF Grant Support: Supporting 2019 Annual Conference
Grant funds will support the 2019 SOSS Annual Conference, the largest annual gathering of Muslim and Jewish female leaders in the country.
SOSS aims to build trust, respect, and relationships between American Muslim and Jewish women and commit these women to limiting acts of anti-Jewish and anti-Muslim sentiment, standing up to hate against one another, and engaging in social justice work. In just over three years, SOSS has grown from 6 to 150 chapters and has reached 3,000 women through their programs and events. SOSS has been profiled in major publications such as the New York Times, The Huffington Post, and The Economist.
