IMAN In the Media: Conversation, Impact, Change

By IMAN Staff

MediaOver the last few weeks, IMAN’s staff, leadership and work were featured prominently in news stories and interviews on well-known national media outlets such as American Public Media, National Public Radio (NPR), The Washington Post, Colorlines, and HuffPost Live. We are always excited and thankful for such unsolicited, high profile coverage and reporting of our work, only because it represents unique opportunities for bringing the communities we work with, and the issues we work on, to the center of  the nation’s public conversation and imagination.  Read More

Living Legacies: From Malcolm To Mali

By Shamar Hemphill - Youth Director IMAN

Malcolm XIMAN celebrated Black History Month by hosting a series of special events from February 21 to 24, in partnership with key organizational allies. To kick things off Thursday night, we hosted an event titled, Malcolm X: Standing With Peace, at IMAN’s Youth & Arts Wellness Center, across the street from IMAN’s offices on 63rd Street. It generated lively discussion and artistic expression, and highlighted the need to inspire and restore hope to the community. Attendees ranged from community residents to youth, IMAN leaders, and artists. The event was a great success and offered an inspiring beginning to an action-packed weekend of powerful events.

Health Clinic: More Milestones

By Adiba Khan - Clinic Administrator IMAN

Health ClinicIn response to the lack of access to healthcare on the South Side of Chicago, IMAN’s Health Clinic began as a grassroots clinic providing health screenings two days a week. With prioritization and planning within the organization, and generous support of our community partners, IMAN’s Clinic has become its most rapidly growing program.  Over the last four years, IMAN’s Clinic has transitioned from a basic, grassroots clinic into a comprehensive health center that operates five days a week: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday.  In 2012, IMAN’s Health Clinic served 834 unduplicated patients through 3,127 visits.  Read More
