“In no regard does excessive drug use warrant Officer Chauvin’s brutal treatment of George Floyd on May 25, 2020.

In no context should a human being face aggravated asphyxia and eventual death due to an officer’s show of force.

In no case should an official hired to ‘protect and serve’ the community ever need to kneel on a person already in custody, much less for 9 minutes and 29 seconds and for counterfeit charges.

Our latest article explores the further implications that the trial could hold and outlines the unfortunate reality that if accountability is never held from the start, people of color will continue to face systemic barriers towards civil liberty and freedom.

Salam everyone! I'm a UCLA Alumna and I wanted to reach out in regards to an event that I think would be well catered to brothers and sisters from the MSA. I’d like to invite you all to come celebrate the International Day of the Girl with UN Women LA this upcoming Wednesday, October 9th. This month’s Chapter Meeting focuses on the theme #ClubsForShe. #ClubsForShe is an overnight camp for young women run by Muslims For Progressive Values (MPV). MPV educates young Women about CEDAW, human rights by linking it to Islamic terms. Our speaker is Ani Zonneveld, the founder and President of Muslims for Progressive Values (MPV). The event is free to the public and iA I hope to see you all there! https://www.facebook.com/events/719619045127038/
