This weekend I attended a fundraising banquet for the Council of American-Islamic Relations’ Los Angeles Chapter with hubs and the in laws. CAIR’s mission is to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding. I’m going to do a full post on this sometime soon, but Islamophobia has had a really large impact on the Muslim community. This article perfectly explains why it’s actually a public health issue and that’s why organizations like CAIR are so incredibly important.
It’s been way too long since I did an outfit post so I thought I’d do one today! I had to be a little creative today because I have yet to do my laundry from the trip heh. I pulled out this old black maxi skirt that hasn’t gotten some love in a while. We were supposed to have six hours of lecture so I definitely tried to dress as comfortably as possible. The afternoon lectures got cancelled because the professor had a bee infestation… That sounds like the most stressful thing ever.
