What Does it Mean to be an ‘Ally’ in the Movement Towards Justice?
On February 25, 2016, KARAMAH broached an important topic: What Does it Mean to be an ‘Ally’ in the Movement Towards Justice. Our esteemed panel included three amazing Muslim women: Ms. Saleema Snow, Ms. Raheemah Abdulaleem, and Ms. Rosieda Shabodien who shared their experiences of fighting for social justice through both their personal and professional lives.
At KARAMAH, we recognize that Muslim Americans as a whole cannot ignore the fact that our presence and our establishment started first with our African American sisters and brothers. Yet, we as a community have fallen prey to two issues: not raising up the stories of our African American ancestors and their impact on our society and secondly, intrafaith racism.
