Help me help our team this Ramadan! Our team is promoting and supporting two great causes: Poligon Education Fund and WAGGGS. Please support and share widely!
Poligon Education Fund is a non-partisan, millennial based organization dedicated to strengthening American Muslim engagement with Congress. Guided by values of peace, justice, and pluralism, they seek to unite Muslim and progressive voices to educate policy makers and make meaningful progress on pressing matters such as civil rights, Islamophobia, and the economy.
Your donation will go towards workshops specifically designed to empower youth to use Congressional advocacy to counter injustices, including anti-Muslim bullying many face in schools, and work for positive policy change. Youth will learn how to organize, amplify their concerns, and hold their representatives accountable at town halls and office visits in district and in D.C.
The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) is a global movement and the largest organization for girls and young women in the world dedicated to supporting them to develop their full potential as leaders and active citizens of the world with 10 million members across 146 countries. Fasting 5k will be supporting WAGGG's Voices against Violence, a one-of-a-kind program to improve young people’s knowledge, awareness and attitudes on violence against women. This program helps young people globally develop their civic engagement skills as they take the lead themselves in changing the global conversation on violence against girls and young women. Young women act as advocates and leaders in their communities and through this international program girls, boys, adults, parents and the community alike are engaged in conversations about violence.
