aaduna supports regional community awards

The InterFaith Works and El-Hindi Center for Dialogue hosted its 2017 Racial Justice Awards Ceremony last night at Syracuse Stage in Syracuse, NY.  Interfaith Works, founded in 1976, builds “bridges of understanding among people of different religions and across racial divides."  The El-Hindi Center “serves as regional hub for constructive community engagement and the important work of dialogue” among disparate groups of people to foster mutual understanding and trust.

The 2017 awards ceremony recognized Zau Jat N-Hkum with the Racial Justice Youth Award; Jawwaad  Rasheed received the Catalyst Award; the Organizational Award went to the Brady Faith Center located on the City’s South Side, and Auburn resident and social justice leader, Laurel Ullyette was bestowed the Lifetime Achievement Award.
