Muslim Youth Identity
The Muslim Youth Identity (MYI) event which took place on December 2nd in Washington, D.C. was a huge success and the AMHP Mental Health Team would like to to maintain the momentum that was garnered from the event by hosting similar events throughout the country. We received several inquiries about coordinating similar Ted-style events modeled after the MYI event in Washington D.C. We are now seeking individuals from a diverse set of geographical areas who are interested in hosting an MYI in their city. If you or someone you know is interested in coordinating a #MuslimYouthIdentity event in your area, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and visit this link to fill out the appropriate form. We’re always on the lookout for smart, savvy young leaders as well who can deliver a valuable lesson or two — and we’d like your help by nominating a speaker of your choice.

Young Muslims Discuss Identity Amid Trump Call for Ban
It’s hard enough to be a young person today, but establishing a sense of identity and finding a community becomes even more complicated for Muslim youth when people like Donald Trump make aggressive, factually dubious blanket statements about Islam and gain followers in the process
These events were led by youth speakers who shared their personal experiences of forming their Muslim identity in a climate of prejudice and Islamophobia. More MYI events are planned in 2017.
