The UNC Muslim Students Association holds Fast-a-thon as an annual semi-formal banquet with the goal to create awareness about underlying determinants of hunger, discrimination, systematic violence, and the intricacies of the Islamic faith tradition. All proceeds collected from tickets sales and individual donations will go to our two sponsored charities selected by UNC MSA’s executive board. The organizations were chosen primarily for their goals to ensure the dignity and inalienable rights of human beings. This year we decided to split donations between a domestic and international organization, the Compass Center and Mercy USA’s relief efforts for Burmese refugees. For our main speaker this year we are bringing the notable comedian Hari Kondabolu. Kondabolu has been featured on Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live, David Letterman, and Comedy Central. Kondabolu’s ability to navigate the nuance and hilarity of the American minority experience will ensure that we all have a great night together after a day of fasting!
