Project Sakinah participated in the 48th Annual Convention of Islamic Society of North America through having a booth (# 812) in convention bazaar. Our presence at ISNA was a public relations success, conveying the message that the Community is Gathering to Stop Domestic Violence. This judgment is based on the reactions of some high-functioning people we met during the event.

Thousands of people passed by our booth in a prime location in the Bazaar, and we engaged as many as we could. We passed out literature. We talked to people about the issue of domestic violence, we talked about DV organizations and the work they are doing, we encouraged people to get involved, we filmed video statements about domestic violence, we encouraged people to take the online survey on Attitudes of Muslim Men and Women towards Domestic Violence.

Judging by the statements of various influential people that we engaged at the booth, we succeeded in communicating the message that the Muslim Community IS Gathering together to Stop Domestic Violence. The banner with all its logos made the statement eloquently and powerfully. Many people expressed gratitude and seemed genuinely happy and inspired to see us there. It is clear that we all gain strength by collaborating.

The list of our collaborators for ISNA booth includes several DV and community organizations: Peaceful Families Project, ISSA-USA, Turning Point for Women and Families, Sound Vision, Hamdard Center, Muslim Men Against Domestic Violence, Texas Muslim Women's Foundation, Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago, SEMAH, altmuslimah, Muslim Advocates Against Domestic Violence, and American Islamic Association.
