Do you feel underrepresented or misrepresented in media and society?

Do you deal with feelings of inadequacy or not being heard and understood?

Do you struggle to balance cultural and religious identity with mainstream societal expectations?

Is there a safe space for you to express your thoughts, feelings, and creativity without judgment?

Join us for “The Power of Voice,” a transformative event designed for young adult Muslims. Through sharing and writing exercises, you will uncover and use your unique voice, and strengthen your self-worth.

At the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Celebrate the immense value of your stories and experiences
  • Strengthen your confidence that you were created for a purpose
  • Learn how to protect & preserve your voice

Empower yourself and amplify your voice—because your story matters!

The workshop will be followed by a free event titled “In Conversation with Ameera Aslam” from 6-7pm. Complimentary refreshments will be available between 5-6pm.
