SoCal Community Leaders Sign Up to Bring MPAC's 'I Am Change' Program to Their Communities

March 20, 2014

On Saturday, March 8, more than a dozen Southern California Muslim community leaders gathered at MPAC's office for brunch and a discussion about issues affecting our community, such as racism, youth engagement and apathy, and to gain a better understanding of the services MPAC offers. 

In particular, the leaders learned about two of our community-oriented programs - the "I Am Change" civic engagement workshop and the "Let’s Be Honest” forum that creates an open space for community members to talk about tough issues. We also highlighted our work with youth through programs such as our Young Leaders Summits that give college students the tools to become great leaders in government, media, Hollywood and social entrepreneurship.

"Community leaders are the backbone of our work and they are the ones who have helped us succeed," said Salam Al-Marayati, MPAC President. "Your continued support, informed presence and feedback are integral to our work. For this reason, we created programs such as 'I Am Change' and 'Let's Be Honest' because it is our way of bringing our strength to you and answering a community need."

We're excited about the chance to find additional partners in communities around the country to enhance our collective civic and political participation. Please get in touch with us today to schedule an "I Am Change" workshop in your community by calling (323) 258-6722 or emailing us at
