History

Concerned about the potential negative impact of the proposed Bill 94 in Quebec, over 50 Muslim women from KW came together to organize a community forum titled “Let Us Talk” at Kitchener City Hall on April 26, 2010. Attended by over 150 community members and the local media, the forum was a proactive opportunity for Muslim women to add their voices to the public discourse about them, while diminishing many misconceptions. Following the success of this event, the group decided to continue their association and form an organization, “The Coalition of Muslim Women of KW” with the aim to build bridges of understanding with the larger community and to strengthen the voices of Muslim women in this area. Now, CMW is a federally incorporated not-for-profit organization with a large body of diverse and dedicated members and volunteers, offering high quality events and programs working in partnership with numerous not for profit organizations and community groups in Waterloo Region. CMW’s membership and volunteer opportunities are open to all women who are in agreement with organization’s vision, mission, values and code of conduct regardless of their religious or non-religious affiliation
