Jamiah's full bio:
Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area, Jamiah Aniece Adams produces educational, advocacy and documentary media for the web, television and film.

The "Count Me In" PSA featured Muslims of Pakistani; Egyptian; American; Iranian and Iraqi origin, extolling the importance of US census participation within the Muslim American community. Jamiah produced constituency new media content for the Democratic National Committee—content that amplified the voice of diverse communities and promoted the benefits of the President’s policies for those communities. Her latest work for the Muslim American community is a video project she’s producing for My Fellow American and serving on the board of the new DC nonprofit, American Third Pillar Charity. Jamiah is a social media strategist for Altmuslimah.com—a blog that focuses on Muslim gender issues both domestically and abroad.
