During Ramadan, join this youth-led presentation about the Muslim American perspective. Whitney Gherman, Extension educator, will briefly explain why youth voice is so important when studying cultures, religion, and other identity-based topics. Following her introduction, a local high school student, Abdullahi Mohamed Musse, will give an entertaining presentation on what educators should know from the Muslim American perspective. His presentation will end with a call to action for educators and staff working with the Muslim community.
This virtual event (now rescheduled to April 6 via Zoom from 1-1:30 p.m.) is intended to elevate youth voices and not intended to replace formal learning about Islam. Please be prepared to engage with our guest! This special program is organized by Project DREAMS, whose mission is to create equitable schools and communities through youth leadership.
