Web Chat to Give Insight About American Muslims

by Sarah Abdullah from Arab News

The web chat will feature Seema Matin, a public diplomacy officer for the US Department of State. Matin will discuss what life is like in America for Muslim women, who choose to wear the hijab, and how she and others are marking the festive season. Matin’s focus as a public diplomacy officer is on Muslim outreach efforts. Currently working for Under Secretary of State Karen Hughes, Matin has been recognized for her contributions to one of Hughes’ “War of Ideas” initiatives, which focuses on countering ideological support for terrorism.
