The Hizmet Movement: Inclusion, Love, Global Understanding, and Change
In this panel presentation, volunteers of the Turkish-based Hizmet movement discuss the transformative power of altruism and love — on which the movement’s efforts rest. Drawing on decades’ worth of experience, panel members highlight the work of the Hizmet movement around the world by providing specific illustrations of how a religious civil society movement rooted in Islam operates in different countries through its main platforms of education, dialogue, interfaith exchange, and charitable relief. Audience participants will leave inspired by the examples set by the Hizmet movement regarding cross cultural understanding, reconciliation, and change powered by volunteers’ commitment to inclusion and love.
