This Graduate Student Spoke at Commencement on Muslims and Allyship in Speech

Amineh Safi, a recent graduate from Humphrey’s School of Public Affairs from Minnesota University, gave a moving speech at its commencement ceremony this past May.

As a Syrian and French hijab-clad Muslim woman, she spoke of allyship and understanding in a political climate that is increasingly turning hostile toward Islam, immigrants and other minorities. Watch as Safi takes the stage and delivers a fiery student commencement address.
