AAFS Supports Muslim Women’s Alliance’s 10th Year!
AAFS had at the MWA Celebrate Muslim Women Expo
AAFS had a wonderful time at the MWA Celebrate Muslim Women Expo on Sunday, March 19, 2017. There is nothing we love more than seeing powerful, strong women making a difference not only in their community but also throughout the world. The program kicked off with a networking event and a bazaar filled with local vendors and local artists. Leading up to the luncheon, MWA gave attendees the opportunity to sit in on Civic Engagement and Youth Parallel Sessions. At the luncheon, MWA featured and honored Ahlam Jbara, Dr. Bambade Shakoor-Abdullah and Silvat Sheik, amongst many others. The event was filled with incredible women who witnessed the heartbreak of those around them and responded by creating programs and services to ease the pain of others. Not only did they each want to do better but they were driven to EMPOWER others to create change! Speakers included Khadija Syed Azam Husain and Keynote; Asha Mohamood Noor who’s moving words reflected on humanity and the strength of women and their leadership abilities from the very beginning of time! We thank the great leaders of MWA for a fabulous event! Congratulations on another year! AAFS staff had a wonderful time!
