Activist-performer youth slam poetry group Muslim Girls Making Change (MGMC) will present their powerful words in a performance at the Greater Burlington Women's Forum on Friday, March 2. These local high school stars, Kiran Waqar, Hawa Adam, Lena Ginawi, and Balkisa Abdikadir, are dedicated to social justice through poetry. Tired of having their voices ignored by older generations, they turned to slam poetry to be heard and to make a change. Since forming MGMC, these girls have competed at international levels, won numerous awards, performed widely, and help lead several local and national initiatives. Their poetry tackles stereotypes and misconceptions about their faith, identity, and fashion.
