The network grew out of the successful Facebook group “Let’s Talk Islamism”.
This group is a digital forum for solutions-oriented conversations about the fight for universal values in the face of Islamist extremism. After surveying some of the 800+ active members, it is clear there is a need for higher quality collaboration against Islamism. Activists from a mosaic of belief systems agree that Islamist extremism endangers lives and rights globally, but disagree on the nature of the problem and how to fix it.
Even the term ‘Islamist extremism’ is a source of disagreement.
However important these different definitions are, the “Let’s Talk about Islamism” Facebook group elucidates a serious problem: definitions and specific ideologies divide even the most intelligent and influential activists.
Let’s Talk Islamism creates opportunities for high-caliber global activists, journalists and thought leaders to collaborate and publicize their work more effectively.
Let’s Talk Islamism is organized by Clarion Project, a non-profit, non-partisan organization challenging Islamist extremism and promoting dialogue with Muslim human rights activists.
Where human rights champions unite.
