'Taco Trucks At Every Mosque' Brings Latinos And Muslims Together During Ramadan

During the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, observers fast daily from dawn to dusk. And over the past few weeks, some observers in Southern California have been breaking that fast with tacos.

It’s part of a campaign in partnership with Resilience OC called Taco Trucks At Every Mosque, which aims to bring Muslims and Latinos together. Here & Now‘s Robin Young speaks with organizers Rida Hamida ( @RidaHamida) and Ben Vazquez ( @DonBenjaminV) about what they hope to accomplish.
