Documentary Conversations: Stranger / Sister
Show Notes

How can we move beyond distrust and divisions towards understanding and solidarity? What can we learn from women of different faiths who have united against hate?  How do we really work to eliminate hate in our communities?  JCo-Leaders of the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom, Atiya Aftab and Sheryl Olitzky joined filmmakers and a panel of leading changemakers for a live conversation. 

Stranger/Sister is the story of two ordinary women, one Muslim and one Jewish, who dare to believe they can join hands to stop the wave of hate. Overcoming a history of distrust between their two religions, they build a movement that turns strangers into sisters, challenging our assumptions about how to fight hate. The Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom is building a powerful network of hope in a time of division, chaos and hate.
