The Women’s March San Luis Obispo, along with the Mosque of Nasreen, Islamic Society of SLO County (ISSLOC) and Cal Poly’s Muslim Student Association (MSA), are excited to announce Rubia Siddiqi as a speaker at the Women’s March San Luis Obispo. Rubia is the President of the Muslim Student Association, and a graduate student in the Civil and Environmental Engineering department at Cal Poly. She strongly believes in advocating for the rights of Muslim women and hopes to bring changes for them in communities worldwide.

The Mosque of Nasreen, ISSLOC, and the MSA will also be joining the Women’s March San Luis Obispo and have this to share: “We are joining the Women’s March San Luis Obispo to protect human rights, our safety, our health, and our families. The values of human dignity, equal rights for all, and freedom from discrimination and injustice are the essence of Islam. We, and Muslims across the globe, denounce violence and terrorism for, as the Holy Qur’an states: “If anyone kills a person, it is as if he killed the whole of mankind; and if anyone saves a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole of mankind.” We are a diverse community who stand for peace and justice for all nations. The American people, and all people of the world, are deserving of leadership that constitutes these values and governs with these principles.”

Please find the Muslim community’s table at the March, and make sure to ask about the next community dinner and annual Mosque of Nasreen Open House.
