Rabyaah Althaibani is a Yemini-American community organizer with over 15 years of experience organizing voters, advising issue-based campaigns, and working at socially committed nonprofits. She is the founder of Arab Women’s Voice, the first 100 percent women and minority owned political consulting firm based in New York City. As a human rights activist, she co-founded the Yemeni American Coalition for Change to support grassroots movements in the Middle East during the Arab Spring. She helped organize pressure campaigns including the Yemeni Bodega Strike to protest the travel ban and the NY Post boycott to protest their attack on Rep. Ilhan Omar.
More recently, she worked to galvanize the Arab vote and get Andrew Gounardes and Max Rose elected during the 2018 Midterm elections. She believes that her role in upcoming years will be rooted in community organizing and turning out young people to pave the way for future generations.
