A Month of Sharing Ramadan with Emerge USA
Emerge USA Florida spent the month of Ramadan co-hosting and attending iftar events with Muslims, non-Muslims and elected officials present to share the holy month. In Florida alone, we reached hundreds of Muslims state-wide to share experiences about fasting and to educate each other and anyone interested in learning about Ramadan. During our Iftars, we have held voter registration drives and introduced the Muslim community to elected officials that attended. The relationship building that took place during this month has been invaluable. We are building a bridge between our faith, our communities and the elected officials that represent us.
Thank you to everyone that attended and our community partners across the state!
