This February Month marks Black History Month. This year as an effort to discuss civil rights, past and present, WNYMuslims is hosting Created Equal: American Civil Rights Series.

Last year we had a tv discussion with three distinguished guests: Frank Masiah, President of the Buffalo Chapter of NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People), Zaid Islam, Vice President of MPAC (Muslim Public Affairs Council) and Duane Maydun, President of Fillmore Business First and President of Masjid Nu'Man. >> View this discussion

Food Sponsorship Opportunity for Created Equal Series

If you are part of the community and want to give back, then consider donating refreshments for our free and public event Created Equal. We ask for your restaurant to consider donating refreshments, for around 30 people, for one of the four discussions. In return we will acknowledge your business at the event, provide an area for you to display your promotional materials at the event, and we will recognize your donation in our weekly e-newsletter which reaches nearly 2000 community members weekly.
