Project Description

My name is Aima Warriach and my pronouns are her/she, I identify as a settler on indigenous land and an intersectional feminist. I was actively involved in ratifying an all  Muslim Womxn’s Group for the Muslim Womxn at Ryerson University which is committed to working from an anti-racist/feminist/LGBTQ2S affirming lens.  ( our group was awarded the student group award for “most active and educational events” by the Ryerson Student Union) .
I facilitated around 400 middle and high school students last May with Ryerson University to talk about gendered Islamophobia and was on an organized panel with Jasmine Zine and Becky Choma at the White Privilege conference also hosted by Ryerson University
In the past, I was on a panel to discuss the niqab ban as the only student among several executive directors of organizations and a professor, hosted by the Mosaic Institute at University of Toronto.

I am currently collaborating with Sidrah Ahmed, the coordinator at OCASI, for her toolkit on gendered islamophobia called ‘Rivers of Hope Islamophobia Toolkit’. Together we also host workshops in TDSB schools regarding Islamophobia. white privilege, and sexual violence.
At an ongoing basis, I also use my position as a writer, graphic designer and digital content producter to elevate Muslim talents.
