11 Feb Muslim and Jewish Women Unite Against Hate on SXSW Panel
Odyssey Impact, a leading social impact campaign organization, has announced their partnership with THE SISTERHOOD of Salaam Shalom to produce and participate on a panel taking place during this year’s SXSW Festival on Tuesday, March 17, 2020. The panel, “Documenting a Movement: Muslim and Jewish Women Unite Against Hate,” will focus on the upcoming documentary, Stranger/Sister, produced by Odyssey Impact’s sister company, Transform Films®.
Stranger/Sister is the true 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 long history of distrust between their two religions, they build a movement that turns strangers into sisters, challenging our assumptions about how to fight hate in America.
Participating in the discussion will be Kirsten Kelly, the EMMY Award-winning filmmaker behind Stranger/Sister and Senior Producer at Odyssey Impact and Transform Films®, Sheryl Olitsky, Executive Director and cofounder of THE SISTERHOOD of Salaam Shalom, and Amanda Quraishi, Digital Media Consultant at DarkMatter Digital Media and Advisory Board Member (Communications Committee) for THE SISTERHOOD of Salaam Shalom. The panel will be moderated by Odyssey Impact’s Head of Social Impact and Communications, Melissa C. Potter.
