Critical Connections is an independent organization based in western Massachusetts committed to building resilient communities through dialogue, analysis, and outreach. Over the past decade, social, political and religious turmoil in the Muslim world, U.S. government involvement in and around Muslim-majority countries, and media coverage have dramatically increased misperceptions about Muslims and Islam among ordinary Americans. Critical Connections seeks to reverse this trend by promoting greater understanding of the Muslim world and by strengthening Muslim communities here in the U.S. and internationally.
