Hussein Speaks About Racial Profiling at MAS-Atlanta Family Camp

October 3, 2012

This past weekend, Yasmin Hussein, MPAC’s Young Leaders Program Coordinator, spoke at the Muslim American Society’s (MAS) Annual Family Camp in Atlanta. With more than 100 attendees at the camp, Hussein led a discussion with a largely youth-aged group discussing ways to improve the perception of Muslims in America.

“It is important for us to work on the prejudices within our own community while addressing the discrimination the American Muslim community may face by others.” Hussein said. “These types of discussions are crucial in allowing communities to come together and brainstorm ways they can become more creative in combating misconceptions.”

Hussein is a graduate of Florida Atlantic University, where she received her bachelor's degree in intercultural/organizational communication with a minor in non-Western history and her master's degree in intercultural, cultural and rhetorical communication.

Established in 1993, MAS is a charitable, religious, social, cultural, and educational organization, and over the past two decades, it has expanded to more than 50 chapters across the United States.

Focusing on personal development of individuals through a comprehensive Islamic educational curriculum, MAS promotes active involvement in communities across the U.S. by providing opportunities for community service, interfaith initiatives, youth programs and civic engagement.
