Blogger Al-Khatahtbeh becomes first Muslim woman to run for congress in New Jersey
Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, founder of MuslimGirl.com, is the first Muslim woman to run for the New Jersey state congress.
In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, 27, announced her digital campaign via social media two days ago. She said that despite the health crisis, the American public needs radical change, InStyle said.
The founder of MuslimGirl.com has also shared some of her photos, mostly in black and white, describing her personality and character.
She wrote, “Hi. I’m Amani. I’m the first Muslim woman on the ballot for federal office in New Jersey’s history. And I’m running for congress in our 6th district to make democracy happen.”
The Muslim blogger also stressed the relevance of the plight of under-represented American communities.
“This moment is a stark reminder that we can no longer wait for incremental change. Our leadership can and must put the health and well-being of working families and the most vulnerable among us front and centre,” Al-Khatahtbeh said. “I’m proud to represent a coalition of under-represented communities in what’s nothing less than a historic fight for our lives.”
