Muslim and Jewish Youth Inspiring Change (MAJIC) is a high school leadership program created by NewGround: A Muslim-Jewish Partnership for Change. 

MAJIC decided it was time to stand up to hate with compassion and courage. They teamed up with filmmaker Wesam Nassar to create a public space on the Santa Monica Promenade to affirm their stories. This film, Circle of Courage, makes the case that young Muslims and Jews are more powerful when they stand together. In this atmosphere of increasing intolerance, we hope you can help us amplify this message of solidarity and hope coming from these emerging young leaders.

Our teenagers have learned through their program the injustice of these blanket statements, and will spread a new message of curiosity over assumptions for the next generation.
