Critical Connections

Critical Connections is a non-profit organization based in western Massachusetts that seeks to improve understanding of social, political and religious trends related to Muslim communities here in the U.S. and abroad. 

We carry out our mission by:

  • Convening timely panel discussions, film screenings, workshops, and dialogues
  • Producing community television shows and video blogs
  • Publishing backgrounders and commentaries on our website as well as disseminating informed opinions through social media
  • Reaching out to public sector officials, institutions and people of all beliefs to develop ways to build inclusive and more resilient communities

 


Please know that if I could be at every event, I would. The speakers and conversations are so helpful for me to learn, so I can then work to offset the anti-Muslim sentiment in our culture. I find far too many other local inter-religious events or dialogues to not engage issues deeply enough. Critical Connections provides me the fullness and richness of thought, politics, culture, religion, etc, that I am looking for. So just keep doing what you are doing!
