Muslim Youth Leadership Council (MyLC) 2020
The Muslim Youth Leadership Council (MyLC) is a group of Muslim-identifying people ages 16-24 from across the country, working locally and nationally as activists, organizers, writers, and leaders on intersectional issues affecting young Muslims. MyLC focuses on four main areas of work: countering Islamophobia and anti-Muslim hate, strengthening sexual health and reproductive rights for young Muslims, promoting LGBTQ rights and supporting queer Muslims, and working towards racial justice and countering anti-Blackness in our communities.
Are you a young Muslim identifying person ages 16-24, interested in
• lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) health and rights
• countering racism and anti-blackness within the Muslim community
• countering systemic Islamophobia
• sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice?
Are you ready to build a proactive movement furthering Reproductive Justice that is inclusive of LGBTQ Muslims, Muslim immigrants, and other marginalized Muslims? Are you seeking out a close-knit community of young queer Muslims and allies?
Note: It is not required that you are a college student to apply. We welcome all young people who align with our mission.
If you have any questions about MyLC’s work, please email Khadija Khan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
