• Soul Brew Liberation Sessions: Khalida Brohi

    In celebration of the Passover season, we’re brewing the spirit of liberation at Beth Tzedec with Soul Brew: Liberation Sessions. This short series of conversations with artists, scholars and activists, led by Rabbi Rachel “Bluth” Rosenbluth, will explore slavery, climate change, racial justice, spiritual liberation and gender.

    Today’s guest is Khalida Brohi, an award-winning activist from the province of Balochistan, Pakistan. She has spent 15 years working with tribal communities to fight against honour killings.

    Khalida is the founder of Sugar Foundation, a nonprofit focused on empowering tribal women and challenging customs like honor killings and child marriages. She co-founded the Chai Spot with her husband David, a social enterprise in the US that sells chai and supports children in Pakistan, and she authored her memoir, I Should Have Honour and has twice been named among Forbes 30 under 30.
