Zakat Means Muslim Donation!

In a time of dramatic world change, we know that some of you don't know what to do with yourselves. "How can I help?" you've asked. Might we suggest making a generous Zakat to the #GoodMuslimBadMuslim podcast? "Zakat" in Muslim-speak means "donation" - and if you like what you've heard us say, laugh and cry in the past 2 years of the podcast, make a donation! Your funds will help cover equipment cost, staff time, website maintenance and snacks. We'll send you exclusive #GoodMuslimBadMuslim stickers, and for a really generous donation, we'll mail you a super duper extra special Safety Pin - wear it on your lapel, on your hat, on your shoe - and let the world know you are a #GoodMuslimBadMuslim branded ally.

We’re 21! Our podcast can dr- ...well, I guess that depends on how much of a Good Muslim or Bad Muslim you are. But, regardless, we’re old enough to say we’ve been fighting ISIS for our entire adult lives.

White House - Here We Come

Taz is going to the White House to accept a Champion of Change Award! Read Angry Asian Man's post on the award right here. You can stream the event live right here at 2pm EST on May 4th: www.whitehouse.gov/live  

I (this is Taz) am incredibly honored and humbled to be receiving a Champion of Change award on the theme of Art and Storytelling from the White  House Asian American and Pacific Islander Initiative. I'll be accepting the award with 9 of my peers - all who are doing amazing artivism for the community. Particularly thrilled to share the stage w/ longtime collaborator Jenny Yang, and my favorite phone banker Jason Fong. My dad and my siblings will be joining me for this week and, inshallah, I'll get to read a couple of my poems at the ceremony too! It will be the first time my dad has ever heard me recite poetry.

As someone who is really trying to figure out what the intersection is between political paradigm shifting and moving people with their hearts and minds - it feels really surprising to be seen, especially by the White House. I feel passionately about using art as a tool for change, for re-centering, for being heard, for creating safe space, for decolonizing how others see people like me. 

Listen to this #MyAAPIStory I recorded at StoryCorps at the link to the right. Be sure to record your own at StoryCorps.me! 

And THANK YOU LOYAL LISTENERS! This would never have happened without all your support in making this podcast a thing.
