CRCC and the National Disaster Interfaiths Network have developed tip sheets on how to approach minority religious communities. While these are written in the context of disaster relief, they can also be helpful to researchers encountering a new and unfamiliar religious group.
You will find information on expectations of dress, gender roles, how to address leaders and other basic facts about religious minority groups.
