The purpose of this event is to continue a community conversation sparked by last year’s White House Iftar. This is an open invitation for everyone to share ideas, foster collaboration, and initiate concrete action to positively impact the American Muslim community. This will be an opportunity to hear about and participate in new initiatives everyone will be talking about. So pull up a chair and join us in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, June 27th, 2015.

– Win $1,000 in seed money, decided by votes from the iftar attendees
– Connect with and recruit like-minded attendees to participate in their proposed initiative
– Gain access to attendees who may want to financially contribute directly to the initiative
To submit a proposal and/or buy tickets, please visit our website:www.grassrootsiftar.com
The Grassroots Iftar is an event held entirely by volunteers with no affiliation or endorsement of existing or future organizations. We are providing a venue and services so that the community may come together and launch its own individual and collective initiatives.
100% of ticket sales will go directly to event costs.
