Rabia HarrisRabia Terri Harris, Founder of the Muslim Peace Fellowship (www.muslimpeacefellowship.org), launched MPF in 1994 as the first Muslim organization specifically devoted to the theory and practice of Islamic nonviolence.
Rabia received her religious education through the Halveti-Jerrahi Tariqa, a traditional Turkish Sufi order. She holds a BA in Religion from Princeton University, an MA in Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures from Columbia University, and a Graduate Certificate in Islamic Chaplaincy from Hartford Seminary. In 2009, her three decades of experience in spirituality and community service led to her being chosen as the first president of the Association of Muslim Chaplains.
Currently, Rabia serves as chaplain and scholar in residence at the Community of Living Traditions at Stony Point Center (http://stonypointcenter.org/multifaith-community), an Abrahamic residential community devoted to the pursuit of peace and justice through the practice of hospitality and the care of the earth.
