So how can I become a member of DOA?
There are different DOA groups that you can join, depending on which location your nearest to. There is a brand new East Dallas group that they are busily gathering new members for. There are three groups already established. One in Colleyville, the Fort Worth group, and the Arlington group. The groups get together at preset times and dates and they rotate their meetings between the different places of worship. Sometimes at a church, a temple, or a mosque.
The East Dallas group is being started by Adel Wallace and she is looking forward to finding some great Muslim Sisters who are eager to get involved in this interfaith dialog experience. The groups are usually intimate in size, some topics gather a large crowd, more than others. The target size is having 8 Jewish members, 8 Christian, and 8 Muslims. There is plenty of room for growth though! There is no cost involved whatsoever. The groups engage in social activism, like helping at a food bank, or gathering school supplies for children. Often the groups obtain grants for their activist events. "Our goal is really to show people out there that all these women of faith gather together with common loves of their families and children and hoping the best for society" Alia says. "The ideal member is a woman who is open to breaking down barriers, keeping our minds open to learning about others and respectful of each others beliefs", she says.
