The Journeys of Muslim Americans in Public Service

The 2022 midterm elections were a watershed year for Muslim Americans running for office, with 83 candidates winning local, state, and federal elections across the country. In Texas, voters elected the first-ever Muslim state representatives. Join Asia Society Texas as we explore the journeys of two trailblazing Muslim American public servants, State Representative Dr. Suleman Lalani and District Court Judge Rabeea Collier, to understand their motivations for giving back to the community. They will share their thoughts on the qualities that exemplary public servants share and give advice for the next generation of public servant leaders.
