AMWRRI continues its mission of documenting the experiences and histories of Arab and Muslim communities in  greater Milwaukee.

Newsletter – Al’Athr

AMWRRI newsletter connects women in the community together. The newsletter encourages women to be active participants in writing the issues that concern them the most. By publicizing other women’s success stories it spreads awareness of women’s potential to raise above their situations and encourages other women to pursue similar paths. These women, through the newsletter, now have an avenue where their voices can be heard and where they can learn from each others’ experiences. This helps women shift their position from dependent mothers, daughters, and wives to independent individuals who are able to lead their lives and shape their destines.
