Lobna Youssef Mulla, one of the leading Muslim women in southern California, will talk about the realities of Muslim women and dispel some of the common misconceptions people have about their lives Tuesday, March 5, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Henley Reading Room in Leatherby Libraries.
Mulla has been working with youth for the past 15 years in various capacities, organizing youth camps, providing mentorship, and leading discussion groups and classes in her community. She also writes regularly for www.suhaibwebb.com. She also serves on the Board of Trustees for the Greater Los Angeles Chapter of the Muslim American Society, a non-profit organization promoting a balanced understanding of Islam. Currently, Mulla lives in Orange County with her husband and four children.
Free headscarves and beads will be available – while they last – and attendees will be able to watch a live demo on how to wrap a head scarf.
