Community Updates June 2021

On May 15, 2021, family, friends, colleagues and community members celebrated Onaje Jua Eagle Heart Muid on his extraordinary journey to becoming Dr. Muid. This celebration was in honor of Onaje’s persistence in self-development and as shining example for his community. Onaje received his Doctorate in Social Work from the University of Southern California and has created a non-profit organization to address trauma in the Black Community and specifically to build Black Family resilience. We congratulate our brother, Dr. Muid on his accomplishment!
 
Corina Sakina and Omid Safi are delighted to welcome their daughter Aya Noor Maria, who was born in February. Sakina and Omid have also continued to offer online courses on the intersection of spirituality and social justice, including a course on the intertwined legacies of Martin Luther King, Rabbi Heschel, and Malcolm X (in addition to other courses on the Qur’an, and also Rumi). More information can be found here.
