During IEW, Aman Ali and Bassam Tariq gave their 2 hour presentation about their “Ramadan Roadtrip: 30 mosques/30 days/30 states” at several colleges. I received terrific feedback about how they created meaningful dialogue about Muslims in the US. (You can read more of my postings about their project and can watch the interview I did with them.)
Aman and Bassam sent this video “shout out” while on the road last week. (I thought it was particularly appropriate that they’re driving while filming - a big part of their 30 mosques adventure.)
During Ramadan 2011, the guys will be visiting the 20 states that they didn’t visit during this past Ramadan Roadtrip. That primarily means they’ll be in the midwest, west coast and Alaska/Hawaii!
If you are interested in booking Aman and Bassam to speak about their experiences traveling across the US to learn about other Muslims in America, please feel free to contact me. They are available from February – July 2011 and during the week of September 11th, 2011, then again beginning in October 2011. They can also speak outside of the US; In fact they just returned from a speaking engagement at the US Department of State’s Youth Leadership Conference in Prague, Czech Republic.
Melibee Global has been assisting them with bookings at no additional cost (beyond their standard speaking fee) to the universities/conferences. I speak with Aman/Bassam regularly, so am happy to facilitate getting them to your campus or conference…and even you’re commencement!
Please share this posting with others in your life who may be interested in their 2 hour multimedia presentation (which includes Q&A.) And make sure you mention that you heard about this wonderful project through Melibee Global, especially after their shout out!
