United for Change began in June 2009. The seminal moment for the UFC initiative was realized after spending time in Mali and digesting the devastating effects of malaria. The sobering reality engaged a commitment to eliminating malaria. As a result of our commitment to bring resolution to malaria victims, UFC immediately formed and set in motion plans to bring increased awareness to the American Muslim community. Our motivation for change and the desire to highlight the Muslim condition in Africa drove us to organize our first event in Washington, D.C. “United Against Malaria”. In 2010, UFC continued with the second annual conference September 25 in Montreal, Canada, “Our Families, Our Foundation”. The third conference “United We Stand: One Nation, One Destiny” was held in Washington DC on September 10, 2011. On September 29th 2012 UFC held “United Against Poverty” conference in Stamford CT.
