Chicago Creatives: Meet Writer And Community Organizer Hoda Katebi

Hoda Katebi started wearing a hijab in sixth grade. It was a decision she made to express her Muslim faith. But to some, it was a reason to mistreat or harm her. Today, she is working to help provide a safe, thriving life for Muslim women, refugees and immigrants in Chicago and beyond. 

Reset sits down with the writer and community organizer to discuss her journey, and her work at Blue Tin Production, a Chicago-based clothing manufacturing co-op run by immigrant and refugee women.
