On Thursday June 13th, community members, parents and school staff gathered at Al-Noor School for MCN’s MY NYC Presentation Night, where four advocacy groups of the second MY NYC Cohort showcased the final outcome of their year-long social justice projects. The presenting groups were as followed:
1) Luminate: Anti Islamophobia Initiative
2) Eat Keen and Clean: Promoting Food Justice
3) Breaking the Cycle: Anti-Domestic Violence Initiative
4) Changemakers: Promoting Leadership in Kids
Through stories, short films, and interactive sessions, MY NYC participants shared their journey – both the struggles and the victories – of taking on some of the biggest social justice issues in the city. We are so proud of the accomplishments of the participants and invite you to join us in recognizing them at the MY NYC Graduation during MCN’s 4th Annual Iftar. You can purchase tickets to the MCN Iftar here. To find out how you can be involved in the MY NYC Leadership Program, contact Maryam Said at firstname.lastname@example.org.
