2nd Annual Grassroots Iftar

Grassroots Iftar is back! And tickets are now available here:

After last year’s successful event and with anti-Muslim sentiment rising due to election season, we felt it was imperative for us to come together again. This year will be a different format and theme — Community Organizing 101 — because countering local, state and national policies that marginalize our community can not be countered by placating power, but require proven strategies and real on-the-ground work. If you’d like to learn how to begin in your local community, join us at the iftar to participate in interactive discussions and learn from experienced organizers, whose names you likely don’t even know. To buy tickets, see pictures from last year, and learn more about this year’s event, please visit our updated website above.

Our budget this year is just over $3,000, as you can see below. If you’d like to help make it another successful event, please donate here:

Food & Drinks – $1,100
Venue – $1,900
Printing – $50
Miscellaneous costs – $150
TOTAL: $3,200

PLEASE NOTE: Our Grassroots Iftar Organizing Committee will strive to ensure that Muslims from various socio-economic backgrounds in the DMV area will have access to this event. Inability to pay $35 should not be a barrier. If you cannot afford this, we have limited partial scholarships for the most in need and, on a case by case basis, will work with you so that you can cover the registration fee. Please email us at grassrootsiftar@gmail.com to discuss. The partial scholarship deadline is Saturday, June 4th.

The venue is wheelchair accessible.
