This lunch talk, "Empowering Youth to Embrace Everyday Leadership," is hosted by the Women and Gender in Global Perspectives Program and brings Bushra Amiwala as guest speaker. 

Bushra Amiwala is a Skokie native and daughter of immigrants who truly appreciates diversity in its many beautiful forms. As communities across our nation- the working poor, religious and ethnic minorities, and young changemakers who are ignored by political establishments- are pushed aside, Bushra is a committed voice for underrepresented citizens. She seeks to ensure that our nation's future is in good hands by building a compassionate, politically-engaged generation.

Lunch will be provided with RSVP by September 9th to https://go.illinois.edu/BAmiwalaTalk
