Join us for a session led by Umm Eesa, and in partnership with Islamic Relief where we collectively explore what it means to realise our potential as Black and Brown people.

She now resides in Birmingham trying to succeed at her hardest role to date; an unapologetic Muslim upon the Quran and Sunnah, a righteous wife and mother to a rambunctious toddler.
Event is open to Black and Brown /POC.
