Due to our speaker's travel schedule, we are cancelling this program. We will look for opportunities to reschedule this discussion of diverse voices in civic engagement in the future.

She leads a team of civil rights and social justice advocates dedicated to the empowerment of American Muslims through legal services, legislative advocacy, and community organizing.
She will discuss the power of diverse voices in civic engagement and how to encourage inclusive participation in shaping our shared future.
She is currently a fellow with Levi Strauss Foundation Pioneers in Justice and a senior fellow with the American Leadership Forum’s Silicon Valley Chapter. She is an alumna of Rockwood’s Fellowship for a New California, LeaderSpring’s Executive Directors Fellowship, and USC’s American Muslim Civil Leadership Institute.
