Stand with Sister Rahma, Single Mother & Victim

Sister Rahma Warsame, Somali American and single mother, was brutally beaten by a white man as she came to the defense of another sister. Rahma is currently recovering at Riverside Hospital, Columbus, Ohio (where she is employed). Her injuries include  four missing teeth, a badly swollen face,  busted lips and a swollen nose

Understandably, sister Rahma will not be able to return to work for a few weeks so we would like to alleviate any financial stresses for her.

Her 12 year old son is traumatized and staying with his relatives; he is preparing to start middle school in the fall.

Justice for Rahma

Muslim activists and members of CAIR Ohio are working on the legal aspect of this case to get Rahma justice.

Update: CAIR-Columbus has been retained for legal representation. CAIR-Columbus can be reached at 614-451-3232.

We will continue to post updates as we receive them, including more about the perpetrator and media coverage links.
