The National Arab American Women’s Association’s (NAAWA) Education Outreach Program held an engaging discussion featuring social justice and education experts from across the country. The panelists highlighted their experiences in building grassroots movements and developing curricula to uplift marginalized communities that are often misrepresented or forgotten in our educational system. Guided by principles of solidarity, the webinar offered tools and resources on how to create effective and impactful engagement from local to national levels. The discussion was moderated by NAAWA-Education Outreach Program member, Janeen Rashmawi.
