The progressive Muslim movement is defined as an effort to gather progressive voices for human rights advocacy, respect for women, democracy, tolerance and peace.
Consolidation is done by opening conversations with individuals, communities and organizations that share a common vision to build a platform at the regional, national and regional levels.
The movement also encourages new initiatives of inter-faith diplomacy, dialogue and cooperation to resolve conflicts or tensions between groups / beliefs that are different, through female and peacebuilding perspectives.
Strengthening engagement with UN entities and the global advocacy network for women, peace and security becomes a strategy to open a dialogue and synergize advocacy agendas at the national-level to the global level or vice versa.
