I can't believe it's March! The natural world is waking up slowly from the strange, unpredictable winter... and so are we.
Super Tuesday results are opening our eyes to the real implications of our political decisions. The need for good people to come together is palpable and urgent.
The Muslim Women's Story Lab exhibit is one of those places.
We invite you to join the conversation, listen and learn about the issues that Muslim women face. Come and see their creative responses to anti-Muslim bias, women and mosque equity, and women’s leadership.
On March 8th, we'll host an open mic with performances and readings in celebration of Muslim women artists!
My collaborative partner, Gail Burton, and I have worked hard to hone this model of cultural organizing -- called a Story Lab. We believe that having access to tools and spaces for creating art, telling stories, and building relationships are ways that communities can affirm their own knowledge, identify the historical roots of persistent injustice, and articulate big visions for the future. We need these tools more than ever!
So join us, and spread the word! We want to wake up to a brighter tomorrow.
