Speaker: Sahar Moazami, OutRight Action International
Sahar Moazami is a recent graduate of Fordham University’s School of Law. Born in London but raised in New York, she is a first generation Iranian-American. She attended Boston University for her undergraduate degree, majoring in Political Science and minoring in History. While attending BU, she became very involved with the Community Service Center and volunteered at organizations such as Project Trust and BU’s afterschool program. Her volunteer work during her time at BU led her to volunteer with AmeriCorps FEMA Corps after graduation, traveling the country for 10 months aiding disaster survivors. Shortly after completing her 10 month volunteer position she returned to New York to begin law school.
Sahar decided to attend Fordham Law School to pursue her interest in public service. At Fordham, she held leadership positions in a number of student groups such as the Coalition of Concerned Students, the National Lawyers Guild, Advocates for Sexual Health and Rights, and Fordham OUTLaws. She was also a member of the Stein Scholars for Public Interest Program and was a Crowley Scholar for International Human Rights during her second year. Sahar is thrilled to have the opportunity to continue her interests in international human rights advocating for the LGBTI community as the UN Program Officer at Outright.
