Current Events
Nov 2, 2023
As the Gaza is relentlessly bombed with an active ground invasion ongoing and no end in sight, many of us are taking to the streets in protest. Protesting is part and parcel of being American, of being human, and an effective way to raise our voices.
Here at HH, we have been so inspired by all the brave men and women – both Muslim and non-Muslim alike – using their voice to show their solidarity with the oppressed people of Palestine and call for a ceasefire and an end to the genocide.

For hijabis in particular, protesting can pose some additional risks and challenges (IYKYK). That's why we created this quick and easy resource guide for hijabis who want to to protest and feel covered and confident while doing so. (CAIR also has a great resource guide here about knowing and understanding your rights as a protestor).
Before you head out, make sure to screen shot the image below and text it to all of your friends and family. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for showing up and speaking out, and may Allah (S) have mercy on and protect us all. 🙏
