LGBTQAI+ Muslims and Allies Interfaith Activism

Jerin Arifa

From youngfeministsnow:

Jerin was honored to spearhead the first-ever, Eid celebration at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in New York City. The sold-out event brought together seven separate organizations for the first time, both religious and secular. The interfaith/non-denominational celebration sold out in less than a week, and was co-sponsored by:

  1. Young Feminists and Allies: National Organization for Women's (NOW) Inaugural Virtual Chapter
  2. The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center
  3. NYC Commission on Human Rights
  4. Tarab NY
  5. The Caribbean Equality Project
  6. Muslims for Progressive Values
  7. The Nur Ashki Jerrahi Community Sufi Order

This event is a continuation of Jerin's activism on behalf of LGBTQAI+ Muslims and allies. She organized Ramadan and Eid events in 2016, also.

I am beyond grateful for what Jerin has brought to my life. ... I walked in to that interview feeling confident and competent, and was offered the job two weeks later with a salary nearly twice as much as I was expecting.
