The Grinnell College branch of the Muslim Student Association held a speaking engagement with Mazahir Salih in February 2018. The Facebook invitation was shared by Farah Mohamed. From the invitation:
- "Mazahir Salih made history when she was elected to the Iowa City city council in 2017, becoming the first Muslim to be elected in the city and the first Sudanese-American to be elected to a public office in the country. Salih, activist and co-founder of the Center for Worker Justice of Eastern Iowa, will be speaking about her candidacy, why she decided to run, and the issues important to her as an Iowan and an American."

Des Moines rally
More than 1,000 Women’s Marchers gathered in Des Moines on Saturday, January 20 2018–the first anniversary of the Trump Administration—to make their voices heard about this administration’s horrific immigration policies, DACA, OUR VOTES, the Muslim Bans, sexual harassment of women, lack of healthcare and government stripping of social services, and so much more.
Under blazing blue skies and unseasonably warm temperatures, CAIR - Iowa Board member Dema Kazkaz of Waterloo gave a resounding speech at the State Capitol to marchers from across Iowa. Dema is the president of the Al-Noor Islamic Center in Waterloo, and a graduate of Hartford Seminary. She is a longtime CAIR - Iowa supporter and our newest board member. As the first speaker, she overwhelmingly set the event’s tone of “If you can’t hear our voice, hear our vote!”
