Presentation on Muslim Candidate Training Currently of the 34 cities in Orange County, there is only one Muslim holding elective office --- there are no women. There is also a major void of campaign professionals within the Muslim community. There simply are not enough qualified people within the community to work on campaigns and thus the Muslim community as a whole --- both men and women --- are grossly under-represented as candidates, as officeholder and as key campaign professionals. Therefor OCIF invites you to a free presentation followed by Q&A for participants that are interested to serve as elected officials, run a campaign or participate in a campaign.
The objective of which is to build a pipeline of Muslim political candidates and campaign professionals in Orange County/Southern California that will protect the interest of our Umma in Orange County. We need to be strategic, not only providing Political Training in 2017, but to look beyond into future election cycles.
When: Friday, January 27, 2017 Time: 7:00pm - 8:30pm Where: OCIF Multipurpose Room Presenters: Ms. Rima Nashashibi, Managing Partner of Nashashibi International Consultant, LLC & Ms. Karen Hinks, Founder and Executive Director of WeLeadOC Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Homelessness is a serious problem; around the world and in Orange County. Some of the homeless people may be Muslims by faith. Orange County is working to end homelessness by 2020. To achieve that it needs to know who the homeless are and where they are. This way the resources can be developed and directed towards, ultimately ending homelessness in our community.
The Point-In-Time team and volunteers conduct a survey of persons experiencing homelessness as individuals and families who or either on the street or in sheltered facilities.
The organization leading this effort is 2-1-1 Orange County; a non-profit resource center for non-emergency health and social services. The next count will be in on 28th January, 2017.
Please pick up information about volunteering at the mosque or check the flier for more information. We urge you to help with this humanitarian cause.
