Life as a Muslim Girl in Maine

We are proud to have collaborated on a series of multidisciplinary programs with the University of Southern Maine for their Gloria S. Duchlos Convocation on Race and Participatory Democracy in 2017-18, examining the social constructs of race through a variety of forums for public dialogue.

Life As A Muslim Girl in Maine was a panel discussion in con-junction with Maine Law’s 2017 Justice For Women Lecture Series with an accompanying exhibition hosted by our neighbor, MECA. The program centered local high school students’ stories and per-spectives after a meeting with Zainah Anwar, a figure at the forefront of the Islamic feminist movement.
