Vote for IMAN – valued at $25,000
A message from Sidi Rami Nashashibi from IMAN – Inner-city Muslim Action Network based in Chicago. Sidi Rami is a good friend, a wonderful person and an inspiration to us all. Please support IMAN.
Assalamu Alaikum, I pray this reaches you all in the best of health. As many of you may know IMAN’s programming in the areas of Direct Services, Social Justice Organizing and Arts and Culture have increased and strengthened exponentially over the last several years. Among the things IMAN is doing to financially sustain this level of programming is aggressively pursuing foundation support and grant opportunities. Our talented and extraordinarily committed staff is becoming more and more proficient in this area.
One shining example of all this can be seen through the work and commitment of Asad Jafri, IMAN’s Arts and Culture Director. Asad just recently wrote and submitted a proposal to the Case Foundation for youth programming entitled “Leaders of the New School.” The proposal advanced to the final round by being among only 20 projects selected from a field of 5,000. For this IMAN secured $10,000 to support the project.
Now we have another opportunity to secure an additional $25,000 if we can become one of the four final proposals selected through an online voting process that ends tomorrow, Tuesday April 22nd, at 11:59pm.
It’s simple; whoever gets the most online votes wins. Take two minutes to click on the link below to select the “Leaders of the New School” project along with three other projects of your choice and submit your selection along with an email address. One vote per email address. Please make sure your vote counts by clicking the link in the confirmation e-mail that will be sent to you.
Please pass this along to your respective lists, the support is greatly appreciated.
Thanks to Sidi Ebadur Rahman for the reminder to vote.
