Rep. Ilhan Omar (D) was elected in Minnesota's (Minnesota is in America) 5th Congressional District with a voter approval of 78%. Without question, Ilhan Omar doesn't mince words. And she hasn't minced words in her criticism of just about everyone: "When we talk about waking people up from complicity, is to say that we can’t be only upset with Trump because he’s not a politician who sells us his policies in the most perfect way. His policies are bad. But many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was. And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. We want to recognize the actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile." Are Americans listening to the distorted Ilhan Omar memes (the latest one below) or are they listening to Ilhan Omar (D) herself? She has said nothing hateful about Jews. She has criticized American and Israeli foreign policy in no uncertain terms. Everyone knows that a Middle East peace is not going to be achieved without mutual respect and recognition of Palestinian and Israeli human rights. From what I hear, that is what I think Rep. Ilhan Omar (D) is saying: 'Are you going to consider human rights when you make foreign policy.' DEBUNKING FALSE STORIES, Meme Distorts Quran Verses By Saranac Hale Spencer, Posted on March 18, 2019 A viral meme has paired old misrepresentations of the Quran with a picture of Rep. Ilhan Omar.
ONE WEEK UNTIL - No-No Boy Multimedia Concert Tuesday, September 25 - 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm Join this nationally-recognized duo as they kick off our What You Missed in History series! No-No Boy is a multimedia concert performed by Julian Saporiti and Erin Aoyama. Taking inspiration from interviews with World War II Japanese American concentration camp survivors, his own family history living through the Vietnam War, and many other stories of Asian American experience, Saporiti has transformed his doctoral research at Brown University into folk songs in an effort to bring these stories to a broader audience. Alongside singer Erin Aoyama, a fellow Ph.D. student at Brown whose family was incarcerated at one of the 10 Japanese American concentration camps, No-No Boy aims to shine a light on experiences that have remained largely obscured within the American historical narrative. No registration required. Not recommended for people under 13 years old.

WIND IN MY HAIR Join the World Affairs Council of Harrisburg for a Special FREE Forum with Exiled Iranian Author Masih Alinejad: Date: July 19th
Quinramca! A place tucked so deeply among these beautiful Peruvian Andes that I doubt anyone could ever find it if you weren't looking for it. Yesterday, I was there with dozens of kids who were so welcoming and happy to see us, In this place, kids wear old recycled tire pieces for shoes, obvious signs of anemia and parasite issues were addressed with our supplies, Lunch for them was a cup of rice and milk, It was clear that they made due with what they had and equally clear it was not enough. They are bright kids, eager to learn whatever I came to teach them. We are going back in next week with shoes, adequate supplies of school materials more vitamin supplements and make a difference here. Go to our website changesfornewhope.com) and help us pull these kids out of a world that they will never escape without our support. All you get out of it is a thank you and the sense that you made this piece of the world a better place. changesfornewhope.com Lets talk!
