Action Together NJ members were honored to be invited by the Pakistan American Council (PACUSA) to the 6th Annual Grand Interfaith Ramadan Dinner on June 15, 2017 in Edison. Action Together NJ was presented with a Community Service Award for its work in support of the Muslim American community, including standing in support of and working with our Muslim American brothers and sisters.
“We are honored and humbled to receive this award. Action Together New Jersey is committed to supporting our brothers and sisters in the Muslim American community by “showing up” for our community members, by taking intentional steps to be inclusive, and to fight against Islamphobia,” stated Executive Director and Co-Founder Uyen Khuong.
This wonderful event included many special guests, including local and state representatives and people from many diverse backgrounds. Action Together NJ members in attendance included Executive Director and Co-Founder Uyen Khuong; Stacy Negron-Sheckells, Clare Eggers, Amie Maria, Tammi Bathke, Fern Goodhart, Lisa Cenneno, and Charmi Patel-Pena.
