Where Faith Meets Action
Muslim Women’s Alliance is proud to welcome Ustadha Yasmin Mogahed, Asha Noor and Kameelah Rashad as speakers at this year’s Celebrate Muslim Women Expo.  On Sunday, March 19th, these national leaders will be tackling topics that are on the hearts and minds of every single one of us these days.  What does Islam say about how to deal with oppression? How do we maintain our mental health in these turbulent times? What are some real life actions we can take to make an impact in the world around us?
