Launched by a collaborative of American Muslim organizations, #IAmAmerica is a national day of uplifting gatherings which will reinforce and amplify our solidarity as Americans who reflect the beautiful diversity of our great country -- and will continue to do so. The Vigils will hopefully serve as both a meeting place and springboard for continued local collaboration for the uncertain times ahead.
Our national multi-faith partners are: Shoulder-to-Shoulder, PICO National Network, The Foundation For Ethnic Understanding-FFEU, Disciples Refugee & Immigration Ministries, and Church World Service.
The National #IAmAmerica Vigil is inspired by the words of American Muslim boxer #MuhammadAli, who said:
“I am America. I am the part you won't recognize but get used to me. Black, confident, cocky; my name, not yours; my religion, not yours; my goals, my own; get used to me.” ― Muhammad Ali External Event Url
