Immigrantly


Immigrants today are treated as a single defined block, where every immigrant is thought to be the same. Immigrantly by Saadia Khan seeks to explore the intersectionality of racial identity, culture & class through the lens of immigrant experiences.

This week we speak with Farah Kathwari. Farah is a Kashmiri American who is strongly connected with her Kashmiri heritage while she maintains a strong sense of her American identity.

Her career has spanned different industries, including interior design, retail, merchandising, marketing, and philanthropy.

Currently, she serves as a board member of the Westchester County Human Rights Commission, Steering committee member of Indivisible Westchester, NY, committee member of Human Rights Watch, NY, and a board member of Refugees international. 

She is a fellow Podcaster. Farah talks about her activism, the Kashmir crisis, and her father's legacy. We recorded this episode a couple of weeks ago, and therefore there are references to the Democratic Presidential Debate held on Sept 12th.
