19 Jan Join MAPS-AMEN at the Women’s March Rally
Asalaam alaikum / Peace be upon you:
MAPS-AMEN Executive Director, Aneelah Afzali, has been selected as one of the only five speakers to take the stage at the Rally before the Women’s March in Seattle, coinciding with the Women’s March in DC, this Saturday! Please make it a point to attend and participate.
The upcoming rally and march will take place this Saturday, Jan. 21, starting at 10am at Judkins Park (2150 S. Norman St., Seattle, WA 98144). This march is in solidarity with the national Women’s March that is happening in Washington, D.C. The event is open to ALL (men, women, and children), and is a wonderful opportunity for our community to stand strong and proud with our allies.
You can travel to the event at no cost on one of the MAPS vans. Please register here
There is also a pre-event informational gathering and sign-making event tomorrow night, Thursday, Jan. 19 at 7pm, at MAPS MPR in order to make sure the American Muslim community is prepared, visible and heard at the march. Please attend and learn more about the event and help make creative signs! More info here
MAPS and its arm MAPS-AMEN (American Muslim Empowerment Network) support the Women’s March in Seattle, and we hope you will join the wider and broader Muslim contingency from the greater Seattle area that will be marching together in solidarity on Saturday.
Jazakum Allah khairan / Thank you
