Bio

Jehan Hakim chairs The Yemeni Alliance Committee (YAC), which was formed after the first Muslim Ban (1/2017)- to support Yemeni-American communities in the Bay Area during periods of social unrest. The YAC organizes protests and actions, coordinates congressional visits, creates social media toolkits and campaigns to resist anti-Yemeni policies. YAC's focus recently has been advocating to end US support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen by raising awareness and pushing legislation. The founders of YAC also happen to be from Yemen and are directly impacted by these issues. Through YAC's advocacy and organizing, they aim to equip communities and allies with the tools to challenge harmful national security and foreign policies that impact Yemeni Americans and their families here and in their homeland. 

Previously, Hakim served as the Community Advocate with Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Asian Law Caucus (ALC) to support AMEMSA communities through educational programs, community organizing initiatives and empowerment and advocacy. Hakim engaged with media outlets regarding issues faced by impacted clients and was involved with the national ‘No Muslim Ban Ever’ campaign.

Jehan is Yemeni American from San Francisco.
