IWA, PMU, MPV
Too many organizations... especially too may that I'm associated with!
I've been re-elected Director of the Islamic Writers Alliance
I resigned as Co-Chair from the Progressive Muslim Union
along with Executive Director, Ani Zonneveld. The reasons: personal attacks and undermining of our efforts by one board member, and the unwillingness of the other board members to rein said board member in. It was ugly, I'm moving on, nuff said.
Since the remaining board members have shut down that organization's discussion list, Ani and I have started a list called Muslims for Progressive Values
. (and we invite anyone interested in talking with Muslims about progressive values, progressive interpretations of Islam, and opportunities for activism to join us.) We are also exploring ways to keep the PMU mission alive, despite problems that have plagued that organization from the start.
And no, don't ask me to volunteer for anything!
