Hi, I'm Aysha Khan.
I’m a journalist in Boston. My work examines religion, digital culture and minority communities — with a main focus on the lives of Muslims in America.
I report on U.S. Muslims and millennial spirituality at Religion News Service, an award-winning, non-profit news wire partnered with the Associated Press. I've filed stories from London to Las Vegas, covering federal anti-extremism programs, Muslim women confronting spiritual abuse and a Uighur woman's battle to release her father from Chinese imprisonment.
I'm a current fellow with the Groundtruth Project, reporting on Muslim communities' efforts to protect voter access. I've previously held fellowships with the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, Muslim Women & the Media Training Institute, and Journalism & Women Symposium. My reporting has won awards from the South Asian Journalists Association and the Religion News Association.
