In September 2015, a handful of Muslim women gathered in Minneapolis to share their experiences and their observations about female leadership, community involvement, and civic engagement. Muslim women were teachers, scholars, professionals, activists, philanthropists—doing the work but going unacknowledged.

Legislative Update

ELIMINATING THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR REPORTS OF SEXUAL ABUSE 

House File 734 was heard on March 13th in the House Public Safety Committee, where survivors shared their stories with legislators on the committee, along with Ramsey County Attorney John Choi. We are hopeful that the bill will move forward from the committee. The bill has also been taken on in the Senate by Senator Hall, who has become a wonderful advocate for ending gender-based violence.

INCREASING TEACHERS OF COLOR IN SCHOOLS

HF 824, also known as the 2019 Increase Teachers of Color Act, had its first hearing in front of the House Education Policy Committee on February 27th. The bill had great testimony, good bipartisan support, and many supporters in the audience. The bill is likely to go to the House Education Finance committee after being referred by the Ways & Means committee. We will update with any details once the bill is referred to a different committee.

MENSTRUAL EQUITY

The House passed HF 13, or the Equal Rights Amendment on March 7th! This is great news and would make it easier for students to ask for menstrual products. The Amendment is set to be included on the 2020 ballot, and reads, "equality of rights under the law shall not be abridged or denied on account of gender.”

Stay tuned for more updates! We are thankful you're all with us in this journey towards a more just Minnesota. 

On the authority of Abu Sa’eed al-Khudree (RA) who said:

I heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) say, “Whosoever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then let him change it with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.”
