Hi, I'm Aysha Khan.
I’m a journalist fascinated by how people are working for justice, in ways large and small.
As senior editor at the nonprofit news site Next City, I publish solutions-oriented news stories about how people are building more equitable, accessible and sustainable cities, covering everything from urban farming to tenant organizing. But I'm trained as a religion reporter: My in-depth coverage of American Muslim communities has been published by Religion News Service, a nonprofit wire where I spent several years as a staff journalist, as well as in the Washington Post, Associated Press, Boston Globe and other national outlets.
I hold degrees in journalism from the University of Maryland and in Islamic studies from Harvard Divinity School. I've been a fellow with the International Center for Journalists, GroundTruth Project, Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, Muslim Women & the Media Training Institute, and Journalism & Women Symposium.
