Rising to the Occasion

Tanenbaum 2021 Peacemakers in Action Yeny Nolasco (El Salvador) and Fatima al-Bahadly (Iraq)

Dear Friends,

Tanenbaum is proud to announce the recipients of the 2021 Peacemakers in Action Award – Yeny Nolasco Quijada and Fatima al-Bahadly. These courageous individuals exemplify fortitude by risking their lives to build peace in tenuous parts of the world where many are too scared to take action.

Yeny spends her days providing alternative activities to youth and at-risk adults in El Salvador, while Fatima advocates for increased civil rights for women and against the radicalization of young men into organizations like ISIL in Iraq. People like Fatima and Yeny are the cornerstone to creating a better world and they need to be supported!

Join us in welcoming and supporting Fatima and Yeny into the Tanenbaum community on Thursday, June 3 at our 2021 Peace Made Possible Gala. Click here for our Gala webpage with ticket and sponsorship info. I look forward to seeing you there!

With my warmest regards,

Rev. Mark Fowler
CEO, Tanenbaum
