The Blog

Join Green Muslims this Summer and Onward!

Salaams everyone!

I’m excited to announce that Green Muslims is back! We have some exciting developments to share with you and new events planned for this summer and onward.

New Website!
We have launched a brand new Green Muslims web site where we hope to rally and organize around environmental issues, especially during the month of Ramadan. In the future, we will be soliciting writers for our blog so please stay tuned and let us know now if you are interested in our survey (below)!

New Name!
As Green Muslims looks to expand its reach, we decided to drop the DC. While all of the leadership is based in DC, we will be engaging in activities that reach beyond the DC area, including pamphlets for Ramadan and potentially Sunday school curriculum.

Survey to Get Involved
If you are interested in getting involved with Green Muslims, please complete this survey that asks about: 1) Specific ways you would like to get active and 2) How Green Muslims activities can suit your interests and availability. Please complete the survey by Tuesday, July 5th. We look forward to working with you!

New Leadership
I’d also like to introduce the Green Muslim leadership for 2011-2012. To read more about the staff and how they got involved, click here.

  • Volunteer Manager: Rizwaan Akhtar

Our Vision and Objectives
