Bone Marrow Drive

Saturday Sept 5th & Sunday Sept 6th

We are partnering with IMANA and CCN to increase awareness and provide an opportunity for ethnic minorities to sign up for the National Bone Marrow Registry.

There are currently many cases of Muslim children and scores of others who are awaiting potentially life-saving bone marrow transplants and ethnicity is a factor in finding a suitable match. Minorities are underrepresented in the registry, which reduces their chances of finding a match and a potential cure for the disease.

Finding Our Voice: Sharing our Disability
Session 8B Room 9 – 10

Although disability awareness has grown in the Muslim community in the past five years, many Muslim families and individuals living with disabilities report feeling silenced and unwelcome and facing stigma, shame, and exclusion. Panelists ( Inshirah Aleem, Safiyyah Amina Muhammad, Sara Minkara, Omar Suleiman Moderator: Dilshad Ali ) will share how owning and amplifying their stories of living with disability have empowered them, and how narrative discourse helps affect positive change for those with disabilities within our Muslim communities.
