—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—
Jamaica, NEW YORK (August 31, 2010) – Given the volatile political and social climate we are experiencing all around the country, a national grassroots coalition of American Muslims asks you to do something special this Eid – invite your family, friends and community to be part of a nationwide effort to spend the anniversary of 9/11 in service to your neighbors and your city.
Last summer, American Muslims participated in more than 3,500 community service projects all around the country as part of President Obama’s “United We Serve” campaign. On September 11th, let’s show that we can rise above prejudice and hatred and be the kind of conscientious citizens who give back to our country through the national “Muslim Serve” campaign.
“Muslim Serve” is about demonstrating how our Islamic values inspire us to serve humanity, and is meant to highlight the great contributions that the Muslim community has provided and continues to provide our great nation.” The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) is proud to endorse this campaign, and we encourage you to participate in your community.
