American Muslim

Amnesty co-sponsored a screening of a new documentary, “American Muslim,” on Friday evening, January 17, 2020 at the Jewish Community Center, Amsterdam Avenue and 76th Street in Manhattan. The film follows several Muslim activists who live in NYC and who are protesting Trump’s Muslim ban. It shows life in NYC for American Muslim activists. Following the film, a Q&A was held that included the film’s director and Amnesty’s own Daphne Eviator (she spoke at Group 11 last year).

In addition, Lenore and Sandi tabled on Sunday, Jan 19th at the JCC with Group 11’s letters and brochures. Films and events took place all weekend.

Group 11 Annual Dinner

Every spring members of Group 11 gather for dinner at a local restaurant for a convivial evening of conversation and recollection.  Prizes are awarded to the member who comes closest to guessing the number of letters sent by Group 11 the previous year. Here are photos of the January 2020 Annual Dinner, the last one before the pandemic. Todd Schwarz was the big raffle winner who had the closest guess as to the total number of letters sent by Group 11 in 2019.
