Lessons in Moral Courage — A Conversation with Irshad Manji

Hosted By: Sousa Mendes Foundation

Irshad Manji is the winner of Oprah Winfrey First Annual Chutzpah Award for boldness. As founder of The Moral Courage Project, Irshad equips people to do the right thing in the face of fear. She discovered her mission through a deeply personal journey.

In 2003, Irshad released The Trouble with Islam Today, an open letter to her fellow Muslims about why anti-Semitism and other prejudices must end in the name of Allah. In 2007, Irshad turned the book into an Emmy-nominated PBS film, Faith Without Fear. And in 2011, she published Allah, Liberty & Love, which shows how Islam can be reinterpreted for the 21st century.

Along the way, Irshad became a Professor of Moral Courage –  first teaching at New York University and now lecturing with Oxford University’s Initiative for Global Ethics and Human Rights. Irshad’s latest book is Don’t Label Me. In this deeply polarized time, she says, standing for what’s right is not enough to make progress. We must also learn to engage the “Other.” Labeling is easy, but listening is a form of moral courage.
