Hi, I'm Aysha Khan.
I’m a journalist based in Boston. My work examines religion, digital culture and underrepresented communities — with a focus on the lives of Muslims in America.
These days I report on U.S. Muslims and millennial spirituality at Religion News Service, an award-winning, non-profit news wire that's partnered with the Associated Press. Some days I'm covering federal anti-extremism programs. Other times I'm writing about Muslim women leading a movement against spiritual abuse, Muslim boycotts of Chinese goods over the country's detention of Uighurs, and Muslim-led bail funds.
I've held fellowships with the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, UC Davis' Muslim Women & the Media Training Institute, and the Journalism & Women Symposium. My reporting has won awards from the South Asian Journalists Association and the Religion News Association.
