Connecting the Sunnah to Anti-Racism

The Sisterhood is excited to announce a new series to address anti-racism and work towards dismantling white supremacy. By following the Prophetic model, we are rooted in the Sunnah and reminded of the diversity of identities and how we show up. This series will provide language, examples, tools, techniques and most importantly sisterhood in order to change a system.

We are partnering with Minnesota Deaf Muslim Community, National Council of Jewish Women, and the Eastside Freedom Library to host interactive, thought-provoking workshops. Location will alternate between Northside Economic Opportunity Network (NEON) and the Eastside Freedom Library.

Sexual Violence Healing Circle: Owning Our Bodies

Sexual Violence Healing Circle: Owning Our Bodies

For many of us who have experienced sexual violence, it can be hard to feel like our bodies are our own after they have been violated. Even though society expects us to "move on,” the psychology of body trauma tells us that our bodies remember, and that we deserve to honor our feelings and our triggers.

In this session, we will explore how many of us have held trauma in our bodies, how Allah swt gave our bodies to us as a trust (amana) and will end with trauma-sensitive yoga based in dhikr (remembrance of Allah).

Not All Sheroes Wear Capes, the Sisterhood’s very first fundraiser, opened with an hour of casual socializing as attendees arrived, sipped piña colada and berry flavored mocktails, and snacked on savory samosas. The reception area at the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation was transformed from a center of logistical chaos to a happy hub of reunions and introductions. For the first time in the organization’s history, our Sheroes, friends, allies, nonprofit partners, donors, and grantmakers gathered to celebrate our Muslim sisters together.
