[I’m back after a much needed internet vacation!]
I was excited to attend a workshop at the Allied Media Conference that was a panel of organizations led by/for Muslims in the US and Canada that do independent media production.
One great group I learned about is the lovely folks at AQSAzine, a grassroots collective in Toronto of women and trans people who identify as Muslim. They have been not only producing this periodic zine but also do great cultural programming work including art exhibits and poetry readings.
Another resource I learned about is Muslimah Media Watch, an online feminist forum where articles and news stories on Muslim women that appear in the media are collected and people can critique and discuss the representation together.
