Our mission is to work towards ending all types of abuse in Muslim families by increasing awareness regarding the dynamics of domestic violence and a deeper theological understanding of Islam.

About us

The Peaceful Families Project is a national organization with international reach that recognizes domestic violence is a form of oppression that affects people of all faiths.. We believe that a better understanding of religious and cultural values can be used as a resource to prevent domestic violence, and that religion and culture should never be used to justify abusive behavior. Through education and training, we seek to promote attitudes and beliefs that emphasize justice, freedom from oppression, and family harmony. PFP accomplishes our mission by: facilitating awareness workshops for Muslim leaders and communities, providing cultural sensitivity trainings and technical assistance for professionals, conducting research, and developing resources.
