Malikah is a collective of trauma-informed women trainers, organizers and facilitators dedicated to building power for themselves and their communities. Through their train-the-trainer model, they equip women in their communities with four programmatic pillars 1) healing 2) self-defense 3) organizing and 4) financial literacy. They host intensive weekend long bootcamps, gender justice summits, recurring weekly sessions and one-off programs to scale access to their curriculum through organizers and trainers. Malikah’s movement is committed to a gender justice framework that amplifies the leadership of the most marginalized women in their communities, women who have been carrying all of us all along. Founded in Astoria, Queens by Rana Abdelhamid in 2010, the volunteer team has reached over 20,000 women and girls in 20 cities across the globe.
