October is domestic violence awareness month. Student leaders, Mehrun Ahmed and Mahir Azam, have organized a virtual panel on domestic violence for Saturday, October 24 at 12:00pm.
The purpose of this virtual event is to engage the Muslim community in a discussion around domestic violence. Spousal violence is a controversial and often unspoken issue in the community. By engaging in conversation with an imam and leaders of community-based organizations, we hope to dismantle misconceptions and the stigma. REGISTER HERE
