The Interfaith Center of New York (ICNY) is proud to have presented the 2022 James Parks Morton Interfaith Awards Gala. While this gala occurs annually, last year we were delighted to celebrate 25 years of ICNY.
We would like to thank all of those who supported us until now and whose continued support will propel us into our next quarter century as a New York based non-profit.
The program was prefaced by group prayers delivered by: Vijah Ramjattan (2021 Interfaith Civic Leadership Academy Fellow & founder of the United Madrassi Association), Danielle Williams (2022 ICLA Fellow & Community Educator with CONNECT Faith NYC) and Hanadi Doleh (Director of Community Partnerships, Interfaith Center of New York).
At this year’s gala we had the pleasure of honoring Civil Rights Activist Ruby Bridges and Human Rights champion Amed Khan, as well as Civic Leader and former ICNY staff member Dr. Sarah Sayeed who was the recipient of our #FaithJusticeHero award.
Amed Khan’s award was presented by Ruth Messinger (ICNY Board of Directors & Global Ambassador, American Jewish World Service), and Ruby Bridges’ award was presented by the Hon. Edwina G. Richardson-Mendelson (Deputy Chief Administrative Judge for Justice Initiatives, NYC Unified Court System). Faith Justice Hero Awardee Dr. Sarah Sayeed was presented her award by Det. Mohamad Amen (NYPD Muslim Officers Association & 2022 Interfaith Civic Leadership Academy Fellow).
The closing blessing of the program was given by Professor Ephraim Isaac (Director of the Institute of Semitic Studies at Princeton).
