On Sunday, October 7th in North Minneapolis, Masjid An-Nur will host the 2nd annual Twin Cities Day of Dignity, a day to celebrate dignity and well being in the Twin Cities.
“It means alot to the communities,” said Masjid An Nur Imam Makram El-Amin. He added that there are: “a ton of services as well as direct services to really help people have a higher quality of life”.
The event is a combination of day of service to the community and a free block party. There will be many free services including health care services, hair cuts, books & school supplies, winter clothing, meals and health and hygiene kits.
CAIR-MN will be organizing a Free Brief Advice Legal Clinic at the Twin Cities Day of Dignity. This is the state’s only Muslim-run free legal clinic! Any lawyers or law students interested in volunteering, please contact CAIR-MN at firstname.lastname@example.org
Last year’s Day of Dignity had live music by Brother Ali and Freeway. This year, there will be live music by Atmosphere and Stalley of Maybach Music Group.
The event will take place outside Masjid An-Nur Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Masjid An-Nur is located at 1729 Lyndale Ave N.
