Monthly the Religion Communicators Council (RCC) which was founded in 1929 provides opportunities for religion communicators to learn from each other. RCC members promote excellence in the communication of religious faith and values in the public arena and encourage understanding among religious and faith groups.
On March 18, 2014 The Muslim Women's Council welcomed the RCC to the Islamic Center of Nashville. The RCC heard from The Muslim Women's Council about their purpose, mission and activities. Initially founded with the purpose of getting Muslim women active and contributing to worthy causes, The Muslim Women’s Council is now taking a broader role outside the Muslim community with those of other faith traditions and with organizations engaging in civic and community outreach.
While people may have their differences in religion, belief and culture; we must maintain mutual respect for each other and discover common bonds between us for the sake of humanity.
Founded in 2011, The Muslim Women's Council works on addressing some of the education, social, and personal development needs of Muslim women by supporting existing community initiatives, organizing education workshops, social activities, community service projects and interfaith programs.
In addition, The Muslim Women's Council fosters understanding, tolerance and cultural awareness of Islam and Muslims to the public by providing accurate information on Islamic practices and beliefs with a view to correct misconceptions about Islam and Muslims, particularly the Muslim woman.
