Twelve years ago today, a terrible tragedy occurred. Since then, the conversation about Islam and the Muslim community has been overshadowed by the horrible acts of a few extremists.
Twelve years later, we want to shift the conversation to instead focus on the positive contributions that Muslims—especially Muslim women, who are so often depicted as passive victims—are making today. Invite your friends to join us by taking the pledge now.
Tomorrow, a special Muslima: Muslim Women’s Art & Voices event will highlight Muslim women who are leaders in their community and who are defying stereotypes. These are the very conversations that have been fueled by this online community over the past six months! At the event, we’ll be unveiling the success of the pledge campaign, and commemorating the force of our collective voices.
