I am very honored that they also chose a photo I took while living in NYC to be used as their main image.
I will also be reading this essay at their event, “Wall of Resistance: A Post-Inauguration Rising Up & Reading,” in Los Angeles.
“There’s talk of leaving the country. Jokes and serious conversations. For me, that’s not an option. I’m unapologetically Muslim American and proud. I’m not going anywhere. My family is Muslim-American. We’re not going anywhere. My Muslim-American community isn’t going anywhere. We are part of the fabric of this country, in all parts of life. That’s not going to change.”
