MAKING PEACE WITH THE MUSLIM WORLD
With Americans still in shock after watching packed airliners fly into the World Trade Center towers, George W. Bush asked America,
“Why do they hate us?”
Steve Slocum took the adventure of a lifetime when he traveled with his family of five to Kazakhstan to become missionaries. During their five years there, they were often on the receiving end of the iconic Muslim hospitality. It left a lasting impression.
Back in the states, Slocum resumed his engineering career but grew uneasy with the growing levels of animosity towards Muslims. In 2018 he founded a nonprofit called Salaam whose mission is creating mutual understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims. Slocum is a frequent media guest and keynote speaker.
