Thanks to YOU, our CAMP chapters raised more than $73,000 for Islamic Relief's humanitarian efforts during our Ramadan iftar dinners. There's still time to donate. Find out how on Islamic Relief's website.
More than 100 people attended CAMP's panel, The Leadership Mindset, at the ISNA annual convention on September 2. The panel continued to build on leadership iedas that we explored at our Leadership Summit in the spring and we'd like to extend our special thanks to our speakers for an informative panel: Salim Patel, Ibtihaj Muhammad Shireen Zaman and Zeba Iqbal.
