The Women’s Islamic Initiative in Spirituality and Equality (WISE) was established in 2005 as a faith-based global program, social network and grassroots social justice movement. In 2015, WISE became an independent organization and currently operates as a partner project under the Fund for the City of New York (FCNY), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. WISE’s application for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status is pending and expected to be approved by the end of 2017.
Vision: WISE envisions a world where all humans are equal, and women are empowered to realize their full potential in creating a peaceful, prosperous and just world.
Mission: WISE embraces the collective and individual responsibility of women to achieve equal rights, empowering them to exercise their abilities and talents in all areas of human activity.
