The Iftar dinner took place on July 21st, 2013 at Turkuaz restaurant in New York City and it was a great success.Thanks to the great Iftar host committee that pulled it together and the amazing friends that made it happened by being present. We were stunned by the overwhelming response we received. Different faiths were present, different races, different ages and even mayoral candidate John C. Liu came. They all made the effort to come from near and far just to be present on a Sunday night. We shared a lovely iftar dinner together, laughed, were moved by the heartbreaking story of a survivor, the words of a youth member, and the warm and inspiring speech of Robina Niaz.
Like a big family, we were all together standing against domestic violence in New York muslim community. And that is the only way we can all participate in the change we want to see in this world. Together, like a big FAMILY, for a happy, safe, honorable, peaceful, and dignified life for everyone.. Every woman, every man, every child.
Often we believe that we are too small to change anything, don’t have enough to help, or just don’t know how to do it. Just get involved, act, and support a cause that speaks to your heart. Give back: money, skills, time, kind words or just a sincere hug.
Thanks again for your participation, your support and your love for Turning Point for Women and Families. See you next year, Inch’Allah / God willing, in a bigger venue for our growing family.
