Ruman Project

Founder

The Ruman Project (RP) is a research and advocacy organization working to foster interfaith relations and counter Islamophobia. Formerly founded as Middle East Collective, the RP was established as a result of the increased levels of Islamophobia throughout the U.S. and Europe, partially due to U.S. presidential candidates’ political debates and the terrorist attacks in Paris and Brussels.

International Friends and Experiences

While living in Sub-Saharan Africa and the MENA, I learned so much about appreciating other cultures vastly different than my own. In 2009 I assisted an interfaith NGO with sexual and gender based violence prevention training in northern Uganda, and continued to Egypt for further research. That experience became the catalyst for my dedication to promoting understanding of the Middle East and North Africa.
