Dear members and friends,
We are extremely proud and deeply honored to announce Almas Haider's appointment to KhushDC's Board as Member-At-Large.
The child of working class Pakistani immigrants and a queer Muslim, Almas Haider was impacted at a young age by post-9/11 islamophobia and brownphobia. Channeling those experiences through writing and activism, she seeks to build an intersectional lens for communities of color to build in solidarity as well as advocate for the rights of immigrants, workers, prisoners and those affected by criminal justice systems.
Formerly the Civil Rights Advocate at South Asian Network and President of Satrang, Los Angeles's queer and trans* organization for South Asians, She currently works with the Fulbright Program in Washington, D.C.
Please join us in congratulating Almas and welcoming her into our family.
Kingston, André, Vaibhav, Pooja
