These are the stories that resonated most with our supporters in 2021: Hanna Nour, a member of our Critical Thinking Fellowship, shares her thoughts on leaving Islam and free speech on campus; Ibn Warraq, the “godfather” of the ex-Muslim movement, and Asra Nomani, an accomplished reporter and a Muslim reformer, reflect on 9/11; Jenn, a survivor of child marriage from the U.S., tells her harrowing but ultimately triumphant story; and Fatima Ali condemns the abuse of girls in her community.
Thank you for reading and sharing these stories throughout 2021—because breaking the silence is the first step in ending abuse and standing up for liberty for all. When we all act together, we can make a huge difference.
