Bushra Amiwala: "Empowering Youth to Embrace Everyday Leadership"

On September 12, 2022 Women and Gender in Global Perspectives Program hosted a talk by Bushra Amiwala on "Youngest Muslim Elected Official in the United States of America". 

Bushra Amiwala is a Skokie native and daughter of immigrants who truly appreciates diversity in its many beautiful forms. As communities across our nation - the working poor, religious and ethnic minorities, and young changemakers who are ignored by political establishments - are pushed aside, Bushra is a committed voice for underrepresented citizens. She seeks to ensure that our nation's future is in good hands by building a compassionate, politically-engaged generation
