About this Event

Muslims For Progress is hosting an exclusive and inspiring private screening event featuring "Time For Ilhan"  and you are invited!  This is a movie The Hollywood Reporter calls "The type of feel-good story we desperately need right now".

Kick back, unplug and watch the film while enjoying freshly popped popcorn, homemade jhaal muri and authentic Bengali tea at Artefix New York-- a vibrant, edgy, must-visit art studio in the heart of Queens.

The movie will be followed by a guided community discussion moderated by MPower Change, to highlight the power of civic engagement in the Muslim community and recognize the many Muslim-Americans now running for office in NYC and surrounding areas.

Space is limited and tickets are expected to sell out so reserve your seat today! Buy a ticket for your +1! Snacks & refreshments will be served. Only children 12 years and older, please.

The Time for Ilhan Take Action Screening Tour’s goal is to engage, activate and mobilize audiences to join the movement for a more representative, reflective democracy.

More Details: On November 8, 2016, a young, hijab-wearing mother-of-three named Ilhan Omar made history, becoming the first Somali Muslim woman to be elected to state office in America. She was hailed by the New York Times as, “one of the bright lights in the post-election darkness,” and the documentary film "TIME FOR ILHAN" intimately chronicles her hard-fought campaign for State Representative in Minnesota’s Senate District 60B. A fresh take on the old story of the American Dream, TIME FOR ILHAN offers an inspiring, stereotype-busting portrait of a rising political star as she begins a bold and powerful political career.
