It was a full house yesterday at our MYNYC summer educational panel. We were thrilled to welcome the Islamic Center of Passaic County students in a one-day interactive MYNYC session that discussed leadership and civic education in Muslim communities. We brought in community leaders from NYC Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs , NYC Commission On Human Rights, and the Yemeni American Merchants Association to share with students the city and community groups’ response to civic organizing. Thank you to everyone who participated.
