In the fall of 2016, as the nation faced a growing wave of Islamophobia and rising hate crimes, two women, Soraya Deen and Marsha Novak, organized a solidarity march in the San Fernando Valley. The strong response of 1000 marchers and growing interest led to the formation of the Interfaith Solidarity Network (ISN). In addition to scheduled events and the now annual Interfaith Solidarity March, ISN exists to respond in times of tragedy and in times of celebration. Faith communities being in relationship with one another allows them to practice interfaith cooperation, to mobilize against intolerance, and to advocate for justice in housing and the environment.
