Event Details

The coming year will be pivotal for our community and for the nation as a whole. There are many challenges from violent Islamophobia to xenophobic policies, but there’s also hope. American Muslims have seen political representation like never before, including the election of Ilhan Omar, the first Somali-American and one of two American Muslim women elected to Congress. Born in Somalia, Ilhan and her family fled the country’s civil war for the United States when she was 8 years old. Ilhan’s interest in politics began at the age of 14 when she was as an interpreter for her grandfather at local DFL caucuses. Through her advocacy work, she’s advanced important issues, including support for working families, access to education, environmental protection, and racial equity.

Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell is the first Muslim woman in the Pennsylvania State Legislature. An activist whose life has been impacted by gun violence, Johnson-Harrell became the first Muslim woman to be elected to the Pennsylvania state legislature earlier this year.
