THE EFFECTS OF ISLAMOPHOBIA FROM A WEARER OF THE HIJAB
Ellie Abdelfatah shares her personal experience as a Muslimah and wearer of the hijab. To counter effects of Islamophobia in the 21st century, she urges the need for dialogue and understanding.
In 2016, Ellie founded the non-profit organization, Community Care of Syracuse which provides New Americans, refugees, and immigrants the critical support and services needed to resettle and rebuild their lives here. Her goal is to build bridges with local services that can provide resources to refugee families. Community Care has helped hundreds of families settle in Syracuse–families that came from Syria, Somalia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Congolese, Sudan, Iraq, Jordan and Puerto Rico.
Eliie’s motto, and the way she ends every Facebook post is, “Remember to love for others what you love for yourself.”
