Aneelah Afzali is a graduate of Harvard Law School, and she’s recently been named executive director of the Muslim Association of Puget Sound’s American Muslim Empowerment Network, or AMEN. We speak with her about:
– The recently anti-Muslim demonstrations (and the amazing counter-protests) at the mosque at Federal Way
– Her work with Pastor Terry Kyllo, visiting church congregations in rural Washington communities to talk about Islam
– Dispelling misconceptions about Islam
– How you can get involved in combatting Islamaphobia
All that, and our weekly Dose of Good News to kick off the New Year!
