Given the COVID-19 pandemic and wanting to ensure the health and safety of our community, the Foundation has moved its Muharram programming online – accessible to all communities through its live streaming here. To promote health and safety, Mainstay is also giving centers and organizations full access to these programs to live stream on their own platforms (Click for access).

Watch a recent live event we co-sponsored with other national organizations, bringing together religious scholars, community leaders, and medical and legal experts to speak on the importance of safely commemorating the Holy Month of Muharram this year..

Our commitment is to commemorate the living legacy of Imam Husayn, in a safe and responsible way. Please join us in supporting this effort, and help us reach communities across the nation, and the globe, through our virtual commemoration platform. Click here to support.
