Marquette Park’s Inner-City Muslim Action Network Director Named to Obama Administration Post

Inner-City Muslim Action Network (IMAN) Executive Director, Dr. Rami Nashashibi, has been appointed to serve as a member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. This appointment is a direct result of the collective grassroots work that IMAN has been doing for nearly 20 years in the Marquette Park community on Chicago’s South Side.

In the heart of some of Chicago’s most challenged communities, IMAN has grown into a dynamic, nationally recognized model built with alliances across ethnic, socioeconomic and religious lines. Dr. Nashashibi’s participation on the council can bring additional attention to IMAN’s model and, more importantly, to the causes and issues that the organization champions.
