Proud To Stand With Ilhan Omar. Will You Join Us?
Mike Fox for the PDA National Team
We were proud as we organized PDA activists to contact their House Member in defense of the attacks on her seat on the Foreign Affairs Committee.
And now we’re saddened, and frankly angry, that the MAGA bigots in the House have removed her from the committee for no legitimate reason besides the really ugly ones: she’s a woman of color, a Muslim, and an immigrant. If that wasn’t enough, her accurate view that AIPAC has too much power in Congress was the final dagger.
We proudly continue to stand with Ilhan, and will work to make sure her voice—and the voices of her constituents—are heard.
These events are especially bothersome as we recognize Black History Month. Proof, once again, that the scourges of racism and bigotry are not only central parts of our history, but of our present, as well.
