Through his work at the Islamic Center at New York University, Imam Khalid Latif has begun to carve out a space for young American Muslims to celebrate their unique identity and have their voices heard in the larger public sphere. A staunch advocate of human rights and social justice, Imam Latif has been recognized and awarded for his writings, sermons, and activism on forced marriage in the Muslim community, as well as for raising funds and awareness for survivors.
“I am only one but still I am one. I cannot do everything but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.”
