Not Without My Hijab Stage Play, Nov 3

Sis. Halimah DeOliveira has extended a special early bird discount to PGMA Girl Scouts to attend her stage play Not Without My Hijab on Saturday, November 3, 2018, at Howard University.

While this early bird offer is available only to PGMA Girl Scouts, troop leaders and chaperones, family members are encouraged to purchase early bird tickets here: https://be-you-in-hd.ticketleap.com/not-without-my-hijab-washingtondc/. Early bird ticket sales end soon, so don’t delay!

 About the play:  Aneesa is a Muslim girl attending public school in the big city, struggling with many of the same issues many teenagers face: bullying, self-acceptance, and self-confidence. Along with these issues, Aneesa is also experiencing a conflict of conscience as she strives to remain on the “straight path” of Islam in terms of her outward appearance. Wearing her hijab has gotten her teased and even physically harassed on occasion.

Not Without My Hijab is a stage play that takes an inside look at a struggle faced by more young people than perhaps we realize. As Aneesa is torn between donning her hijab with confidence while navigating life as a teen and not wearing it but continuing to practice her faith, she confronts the question: Just how important is the hijab to her faith?

Reminder: Meet a Girl Scout Muslimah Interfaith Outreach THIS SATURDAY, May 14

As a part of earning their My Promise, My Faith pin, PGMA Girl Scouts are reaching out to local Girl Scouts of other faiths. Our goal is to combat Islamophobia by educating our sister Girl Scouts about Islam and Muslims through song, informative presentations, a tea party, a tour of the impressive Diyanet Center campus, and, of course, SWAPS!

PGMA Girl Scouts should wear their full uniform (white scarf, white shirt & khaki pants or khaki jilbab) and uniform vest. Bring an extra scarf in case one of our guests forgets or does not have one. Girls should arrive at 10:30AM to set up and be prepared to leave at 2:30PM after cleaning up. No tagalongs please.

Parking & Building Location: Use the underground parking entrance opposite 100th Avenue. Once you enter underground parking, the entrance to the Guest House is the first door on the right. Take the elevator to the first floor. The program will be in the Guest House Cafeteria.

Bring $2 (exact change, please) to purchase an optional fun patch for the event.
