In the wake of the immigration bans and heightened Islamophobia in the United States and abroad, it's more important than ever to amplify Muslim women's voices and fight for inclusion and justice in our communities. We hope you'll join us for this exciting night of community building and activism to engage in an important conversation about supporting the Muslim community and resistance in the Trump era.

Join Sakhi for South Asian Women, a leading NYC womens advocacy organization, in this exciting evening with author, media mogul, and founder of popular online magazine Muslim Girl, Amani Al-Khatahtbeh.

Since starting Muslim Girl from her bedroom at seventeen, Amani has become a prominent feminist powerhouse, speaking around the country and the world (notably at the most recent United State of Women alongside Michelle Obama and Gloria Steinem) on gender justice and issues affecting Muslim women. The site today boasts one million unique visitors, 50 writers and editors, and its creator is a Forbes 30 Under 30 in media. Amani has been profiled in various media outlets including the New York Times, New York Magazine, Teen Vogue, and written numerously on everything from media representation to anti-blackness in her community.

In October, Amanis memoir, Muslim Girl: A Coming of Age was published to rave reviews and named a NYT Editors Pick. This evening, well be hearing a reading from the book, have time for an audience Q&A, and learn more about what makes this brilliant young feminist tick.
