Bidding Farewell to Our Inaugural Executive Director
fellow Hoosiers on Muslim centric issues and collaborated with like-minded organizations to bring positive change to our communities. IMAN Associates was also at the forefront of the Muslim community's response to heinous and unfortunate hate crimes, including the murder of Mustafa Ayoubi in 2019, the 2020 shooting of the Masjid-E-Noor mosque in Indianapolis, and the 2021 vandalism of the Islamic Center of Bloomington, IN. We wish Alami great success in her future endeavors.
