3rd Annual Convention
Ordinary People, Extraordinary Heroes
AMV needs your support urgently
An appeal from Samina's daughter
By God's grace and guidance, my mother Samina Faheem Sundas found in herself the strength, spirit and courage to take on His vision of restoring humanity in our world. Although the challenges are nothing short of daunting and the road to realizing that vision is fraught with disappointments and setbacks, I feel that God chose her specifically for such a mission. He must have known that she was strong enough to withstand all the challenges and find a way to rise above them and carry on. I feel that He must have believed in her relentless desire to serve Him through his creation for He has put some of the finest activists in her corner to work with and some of the finest human beings who have also become her friends.
These fine people have been coming out of the woodwork since she first launched AMV three years ago. Most of her friends and family have not seen much of her since 9/11 but she was needed to fight injustice. Although a few of the AMV members built the organization on their personal funds, in no way do they consider this organization theirs alone. In fact, this grassroots organization is the heart of the AMV team members as it is the heart of fellow Americans who believe in the need to bridge the gap between communities and learning about their Muslim neighbors. They also see the need to create a culture of peace, acceptance, mutual respect and harmony. They have been supportive in every way imaginable since AMV's inception. It is this support that has helped bring AMV into the public awareness globally as a bona fide peace organization fiercely determined to protect and preserve civil liberties, constitutional rights, justice for all.
AMV team members are ready to expand God's vision and their work to you. AMV's goal has always been to bridge the gap between all communities and create a culture of peace, acceptance, mutual respect and harmony. AMV continues to accomplish that by taking the interfaith dialog to the next step of forming genuine, sincere coalitions and forming lifelong friendships. In just three short years, AMV has enjoyed support from their fellow Americans nationally, even in the current political climate of hate and anger towards Muslims and Islam. AMV was nominated as a peace organization by them. AMV has had great success in forming coalitions, building genuine alliances and fostering friendships beyond expectations. By using AMV's model, we can ensure security, safety, peace and harmony in our country. However, this can only be achieved by getting to know each other and investing in each other. It is an investment that, with your support, can reap immeasurable and invaluable dividends for you and our generations to come.
AMV is in great need of staff members, office equipment and funds to implement youth programs and speakers. They also need funds to continue their super hit social events like open houses and peace picnics to educate fellow Americans about Islam and American Muslims. These events cultivate understanding, peace and friendships.
I urge you to please help continue the crucial and rewarding work of protecting and preserving civil liberties, constitutional rights for all and bridging the gap between all communities. Please help them carry forward God's vision of love, kindness and peace by donating generously.

PS: My daughter Misbah K. Faheem and my son Mohammad Saqib Faheem both are very supportive of my commitment to fight injustice, bridge the gap between all communities and trying to create a culture of peace, acceptance, mutual respect and harmony. .After graduating from University of Minnesota with a French major and Child Psychology minor she took over my business and gave me the best gift of my life, four years to do what ever I wanted to do. She is the reason I could dedicate all my time to do my work. I managed a hotline during INS special registration, 24/7 for a year and am now trying to build AMV. She was the bread winner for our family for those four years.
