INGYouth Speaker Anissa delivered a presentation on growing up Muslim in America for a high school’s Day of Remembrance Event, which marked the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. She said, “Muslim and Japanese oppression are similar because these communities were both and are both under suspicion and viewed with fear and in some cases, hatred. I would urge you all to spread what you have learned today and to alter the ignorance and misconceptions of Islam and other religions.”
The INGYouth Program trains American Muslim teens to be effective public speakers and advocates.
