About the Crescent Peace Society
The Crescent Peace Society is a not for profit organization established in 1996. The Society was formed  after the Oklahoma City bombing by a small group of committed Muslims from the  Greater Kansas City area. This painful event in Oklahoma, affected not only the victims and their families, but also our entire nation. For the Muslim community, it affected children who were afraid to attend their schools when  there was much misinformation about who committed this heinous crime.  The Society seeks to reach out at the local level to enhance understanding through educational and cultural interactions with other faiths and the media.
