“All of FBI Memphis and I extend our best wishes to Muslims throughout the tri-state area at the beginning of the spiritual journey of fasting, prayer, and reflection during the holy month of Ramadan.

Here in the Memphis area, we are blessed with communities as diverse as our nation itself. Diversity is one of the FBI’s core values, and the cultural diversity of the FBI and our community is one of our greatest strengths and sources of pride.

Ramadan is a time of community, as Muslims fast during daylight hours and families invite neighbors and friends to share their evening meal – iftar.  I am thankful for, and look forward to the opportunity to join many in our community for iftar dinner.”
