KARAMAH hosts several events in the form of lectures, networking events, workshops, discussion circles and educational programs to facilitate the friendly exchange of ideas and further educate the public about Shari’ah in general and the rights afforded to women under Islam in particular. Please check back often to see upcoming events.
Our 2020 Virtual LLSP is underway and we are not accepting new applicants at this time. If you are interested in applying to one of our programs, leave your information with us and we will send updates regarding future programs.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, this year's program is virtual and will allow both Muslim women and Muslim men to participate. The Virtual Law & Leadership Program ("VLLP") will be based on KARAMAH’s Law and Leadership Summer Program ("LLSP") which is only for Muslim Women. VLLP will provide participants with the fundamental understanding and essential skills needed to lead themselves, their peers, and the movements they are passionate about from a gender-equitable perspective.
