Muslim Run & GOTV

During the next month, IMAN leaders will be hitting the pavement to register the community to vote. Six days a week, leaders will be stationed in and around three of our Muslim Run corner stores.

It’s not only about growing fresh produce and eating healthy, but it’s about the idea of inspiring new ways of thinking about community life. Read More
