2019 SoCal Dinner

Creativity, Innovation, and Community : SoCal Dinner 2019

On Saturday, September 21, join MuslimARC and dozens of other organizations at the Shelby in Carson, CA for a glam night of artists, filmmakers, storytellers, and movement leaders telling the story of their anti-racism work in SoCal.

Our theme for our 2019 MuslimARC Anti-Racism Awards dinner is the "Muslim American Mosaic." Let’s celebrate Muslim creativity, innovation, and community building. The event will feature entertainment, community art, and plenty of networking with artists and activists doing amazing work in SoCal!

This will be an evening to meet fellow creatives across faith-based communities. Join us for delicious food, artistic performances, exciting news about our projects including our role in the new comedy East of La Brea, and our 2019 racial justice awards!
