Our Goals

This year we are taking our annual nationwide Ramadan engagement to the next level by hitting the road to feature stories of multifaith Iftars in cities throughout the Southeast United States.

Through this Initiative We Intend to:

  1. Catalyze interaction between “unlikely companions” in the specific locations of the events

  2. Counter anti-Muslim messaging by uplifting stories of American Muslims through the lens of Ramadan, and spark the collective imagination on the many shades of multifaith engagement across the country

  3. Challenge the traditional interfaith model and help people see how they can enter interfaith experiences in ways that go beyond the “standard” way of doing things
