Linda Sarsour

Linda Sarsour is a community organizer and racial justice activist. She is one of the most widely known Palestinian American women for her advocacy on behalf of Palestinians. She has been called every Islamophobe’s worst nightmare. Her activism spans a range of interests from immigration, mass incarceration, stop-and-frisk and the New York City Police Department’s spying operations on Muslims. She has helped organize major women’s marches and Black Lives Matter protests. She has been hailed as “shattering stereotypes of Muslim women.” And she has told her critics “Stop telling me to go back to my country. I’m from Brooklyn.”
