What are some of your next steps as the new executive director? What do you see in the future of NCPCF?
As the new Executive Director of NCPCF I am working on getting the NCPCF to adopt an intersectional approach to our work, so that we can become more connected with larger issues that impact different minority/target groups in the United States.
As part of NCPCF’s future, I also want to refine our model of centering the voices of impacted families as they serve as the experts of state violence and how to combat it. With all of this in mind, I think that NCPCF can and will claim its place as an organization that exists to bring about radical change and justice through the challenging of structures that de-facto exist to criminalize and marginalize the Muslim American community.
