Programs

Core Programs:

1. Community Defense: Our community defense program focuses on three core pieces: 1) political education for Muslim communities, Muslim-led and centered mobilizations, and Know Your Rights for Muslims in the DMV area.

2. Building Community Resilience Through Healing And Wellness Programs For Muslim Communities: Currently we host a monthly Muslim Women’s Wellness and Resistance Program and every few months offer a general healing space for community building and processing the impact of Islamophobia on our well-being.

3. Muslim Women’s Organizing Institute: Our Muslim Women’s Organizing Institute is a space to uplift the work of Muslim women organizers and to focus on unique ways Muslim women are impacted by multiple forms of violence. Specifically, we are launching a program to support and train Muslim women organizers in the DMV.

4. Alliance & Coalition Building through the DMV Resisting Islamophobia Network: We organize a space every other month to host groups and individuals working with Muslim communities in the DMV and ally groups working on interconnected struggles.
