Host a Fundraising Iftar to Support Believers Bail Out
This Ramadan, we are partnering with MPower Change for our Ramadan Campaign. We are asking you to host an Iftar, the fast-breaking meal, in your community in support of Believers Bail Out. If you would like to host your own fundraising Iftar but need planning support, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Depending on the size and complexity of your event, you’ll want a few weeks to plan it. The key components: a meal, a short talk or video, and fundraising.
For an easy guide to how to set up an Iftar in your area, and for inspiration on talking points, please view/download the “Sample Iftar Agenda and Invite” to the right, or download the full BBO Iftar toolkit below.
Iftars have three main goals:
Raise money to bail out Muslims who are being held in pretrial incarceration and immigration confinement without having been convicted of a crime
Educate ourselves and our communities about money bail, mass incarceration, deportation, and their intersections with racism
Lay the groundwork for future anti-racist work in our communities grounded in our religion and our faith
