Save the date for our Muslim American Mosaic Dinner on September 21. 


Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative (MuslimARC) is deeply honored to recognize and amplify the work of six individuals for this year's racial justice awards ceremony during our Muslim American Mosaic dinner on September 21st in Carson, CA. As a human rights education organization committed to countering racism, xenophobia, and Islamophobia our awards reflect our three purposes: 

  • CREATE education resources and workshops

  • CONNECT a multifaith and multiracial network using multimedia, dialogue, and storytelling, and  

  • CULTIVATE solutions for racial equity through strategic planning, research, and curriculum development

We are presenting two Creator Awards to Rida Hamida, founder of #LatinoMuslimUnity, and Genaro Waheed of Sahaba Initiative.

For our Connector Awards, we are proud to honor Ismahan Abdullahi the National Deputy Director of the Muslim American Society (MAS), and Marya Bangee, the Executive Director of Harness. 

We are also pleased to recognize Umar Hakim, the Executive Director of Intellect Love Mercy foundation (ILM) and LA Voice board member,  with the Cultivator Award

And, last but not least, we are proud to present the Legacy Award to Dr. Mustafa Kuko for his lifetime commitment to ensuring the dignity of the poor and disabled, the young and the old, people of every ethnicity and religion.  

We are grateful to Pillars Fund for sponsoring this year's awards ceremony, which lifts up the work of leaders from San Diego, San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange County, and Los Angeles. We hope you join us to hear from our honorees and enjoy an evening of community, innovation, and collaboration.
