He Named Me Malala: Film Screening and Discussion

Feb 28, 2017 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

In partnership with Avonworth Middle School

Malala imageHe Named Me Malala is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who, at 15, was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. This attack sparked an outcry from supporters around the world, and Malala miraculously survived. This documentary film provides a glimpse into the life of an extraordinary young girl and shows us how Malala, her father Zia, and her family are committed to fighting and advocating for education for all girls worldwide.

Following the evening’s screening of He Named Me Malala, join us for a discussion about equitable education opportunities for girls and women’s empowerment in Pakistan with Nadia Khawaja of the Muslim Association of Greater Pittsburgh.  

Nadia KhawNadia photoaja was raised in South Florida and in the suburbs of Atlanta. She holds a Master of Public Policy degree from Georgetown University and was a Presidential Management Fellow at the Department of Homeland Security, where she served in various leadership roles at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
