Listen on Itunes and Stitcher

We have got a supersized Nonprofit Tangent episode for you today! We're packing your happy meal full of three fantastic interviews; You'll get stories from the passionate Carmin Caterina’s education nonprofit, "Lessons for my Daughters," the amazing Ambassador Rubina Ali and the Global Learning Trust and the charming Rami Abouemira who has a number of projects that seeking to counter Islamophobia.

We start with Queens native Carmin Caterina’s organization “Lessons for my Daughters.” In a system that values test scores more and more, Carmin’s organization steps in to fill in the missing pieces and works to create a more complete education system for young girls.

We then move to hear Ambassador Rubina Ali’s captivating story through being a very successful tax auditor in Texas to a Boy Scout leader to social worker and ultimately moving to Pakistan where she has become an important leader in the movement for global peace.

Then we end by hearing Rami Abouemira describing how an all too familiar Islamaphobic Facebook rant inspired “Identify Yourself,” a project that highlights the wonderful humanity and diversity of the Muslim-American community.
