Potluck Iftar at the Art House
Ramadan is here and we’re eager to break fast, share bread, gather resources to support our movements, and build bonds with you! We would love for you to join us at the Uptown Art House this coming Thursday for a potluck Iftar with good friends (old and new).
Here is what you need to know:
Thursday, 6/15 – 7:30 pm
Uptown Art House
3412 Connecticut Ave NW,
Washington, DC 20008
RSVP: If you’re for sure attending (not “InshAllah” attending), hit “going”! Otherwise, hit “interested” if you’re still thinking about it. It will help us prepare the space accordingly! Bring along special others/parents/children/
We’ll have dates, prayer sheets, some food, and great company.
Three things we need you to bring:
– Water bottle (help us minimize the need to use disposable cups!)
– A dish to share! Use the comments section to share what you’ll bring and consider bringing food that means something special to you! (Please mark dishes that have meat and/or are halal)
– A minimum $15 donation (more info below)
This Ramadan, we’re raising funds for two movements groups in our area: the Uptown Art House and the DC Justice for Muslims Coalition. Led by a group of local POC artists and activists, the Art House’s vision is house and build DC’s flourishing social justice movements and independent arts scene. DC Justice for Muslims is a coalition combating institutional and structural Islamophobia in the DC metro area. DCJMC envisions a world where Muslims around the world are treated with dignity and respect while being afforded equal access to human and civil rights.
Donations can be either prior to the event via venmo (@mahrohj), or the day of via cash/venmo. Donations are recommended, but are not required to take part in the iftar. Message if you have any questions!
السلام عليكم (Peace be upon you)
