ICE at Your Door?

In 2018, we developed documents in Arabic and English giving people information on what to do if Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers show up at your door.


These documents push back against HB 370, requiring sheriffs and jails to determine immigration status of people in custody and share information of those suspected to be undocumented with ICE.


ACLU NC Champion of Liberty (2018)

Muslim Women For was awarded the “Champion of Liberty” Award by the American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina. They were nominated and presented with the award by a local lawyer, Taiyyaba Qureshi.

‘Our 7 Neighbors’ with Lela

When you’re talking about anti-Muslim bigotry, you have to talk about how Black folks are being treated in this country, how immigrants are being treated. It needs to be very intersectional, it needs to be directed at the roots.”

— Lela Ali, Muslim Women For
