Sadia Aurna

Spreading Love and Helping People in the most Productive and Human way Possible

Stories of Key Peace & Justice Work

Sadia Akhter Aurna, was born and raised in Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh. Since a very young age she saw poverty, hunger, the need for peace, the need for education and a safer environment to save earth and humans; for all humans regardless of their gender, sexual preference or religion. Growing up in a Muslim household, in a Muslim majority country, she saw the discrimination towards the less powerful group and realized how when one specific group is in power then you must raise your voice for the unheard, for the so called “minority.” When two of her friends, prominent LGBT rights activists of her country were beheaded in front of their parents by terrorists, two days after she saw them, she realized how you must do whatever you can to bring peace and solidarity. She realized how you need to raise your voice when you live in male dominant society. She realized how you need to raise your voice for the very marginalized people of your community because when flood and hurricane hits, it’s them who are the most vulnerable, not the rich and the powerful. So, she started doing that by writing, joining organizations that support the less privileged and through joining many peaceful protests against corruption, violence and injustice and plan to do so throughout whole life. 

Sadia is currently part of the Development Team for On Earth Peace. Some of her other key commitments include working with Ashoka as their 2020 summer Intern. Finally, she is also the president of the Indian SubContinent Student Organization at the University of Findlay.
