Fayzan: Once Outcast in ATL to M4A Organizer (Part 1) by What's Left To Do? published on 2021-06-18T17:24:32Z (Did everyone see what I did there with this episode title?) I shouldn't have given him such a hard time at the beginning of this interview haha Fayzan is a no non-sense kind of guy when it comes to campaigns (which is probably why we did so well in The Bay). But outside of the hectic setting of a presidential primary, quite a bit of fun! Fascinating story here of a young man who had to navigate the social difficulties of enduring the divorce of his parents in his tight knit Muslim, Pakistani-American, Atlanta community (in which divorce is a huge taboo!) and how that shaped him in a number of ways as an adolescent. He got his first taste of political praxis on the erudite campus of Emory University through the organizing spearheaded by a dearly departed friend. And eventually, he was able to reintegrate and reclaim his Muslim identity through his political work.
