"Seeking Justice Together"
“O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm for Allah, witnesses in justice, and do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just; that is nearer to righteousness.” (5:8)
Welcome to the Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion 2019 Ramadan Appeal homepage.
This is the fifth consecutive Ramadan Appeal, begun by our former board chair and dear colleague, Ghalib Begg.
During the 78 years, the Roundtable has been standing against harm to our neighbors because of their religion, race or other identities, we have enjoyed a long history with the Muslim community.
Storytelling and healing is the foundation of the work done by the Race2Equity Initiative by providing tools to amplify the voices of those most impacted by systemic racism in Michigan. We honor lived experiences as a pathway to healing and transformation. Unique to this work is the value placed on the role of listening. It is in creating a space for intentional listening that we are able to envision these pathways to justice and healing. Healing Stories is used as an intersectional tool in all our work.
