Khadija Gurnah is a Campaign Director with the MomsRising Immigration campaign.
For more than ten years Ms. Gurnah has worked in the global south and throughout the United States to improve equity and access to underserved populations. She has used her extensive experience in program development, implementation, delivery and analysis to engage on projects with the White House Office of Public Engagement and the Department of Health and Human Services. She worked with the Department of Education on a bullying prevention campaign to bolster cultural sensitivity and with the Office of Juvenile Justice to support religious accommodation for Muslim youth in the juvenile justice system.
Her successful national outreach campaign to bolster enrollment in the Affordable Care Act in the Muslim community led to her recognition as a White House “Champion of Change” by the Obama administration.
Prior to joining MomsRising full-time as a Campaign Director, she worked for MomsRising as a consultant to help develop the Ramadan edition of the Faith and Food Justice Toolkit.
