Building Allies in Defense of Civil Liberties
Civil rights lawyer and Muslim rights activist, Roula Allouch, will discuss the current state of civil rights advocacy in the United States. Drawing on her own experiences as a Muslim American and her work defending Muslim American civil liberties, she will explain the current rise in intersectional alliances among marginalized groups. Her talk will highlight important ways that Muslim rights activists have increasingly worked more closely with women’s rights groups, Jewish Americans, and LGBTQ communities to help defend common civil liberties. Roula Allouch is a licensed lawyer in Kentucky and Ohio, a graduate of the University of Kentucky College of Law, and currently serves as Chair of the National Board of Directors of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
