iPhone : .AIPAC *wants* U.S. taxpayer dollars to Israel to be spent on abusing Palestinian human rights? Imprisoning children? Demolishing homes? Annexing Palestinian land? Apparently they do. twitter.com/AIPAC/status/1…

iPhone : This is egregious

Nothing about the response to this protest has been competent, compassionate, or humane.

I’m stating now, and will continue to insist that all charges brought during this police/military action be dropped against protesters.

iPhone : Afghanistan was never ours to win or lose. WTH is wrong with these people who love talking about war as if it’s a game. It’s lives and futures stolen meaninglessly by people who comfortably beat the drums of war at no real consequence to them. twitter.com/jrubinblogger/…

iPhone : The initial stop that occurred prior to the killing of Daunte Wright should’ve never happened in the first place. These stops are dangerous and unnecessary.

Today we unveiled legislation that limits the suspected offenses for which drivers can be pulled over by police. #mnleg

iPhone : Too many are struggling to make ends meet. People need help. Putting even more dollars toward the Pentagon’s budget is the last thing we should be doing right now.

iPhone : What does justice look like?

iPhone : As Biden plans an Afghanistan exit, some hawks say we must stay to improve womens lives. “Its an argument with which Im deeply sympathetic,” Emma Ashford says, but its “not the reason the U.S. went into Afghanistan. It’s not even the reason we stayed there for 20 years.”

iPhone : We have a duty to care for one another. People feel hurt, traumatized and vulnerable. Please join us for wellness calls, sign up for a shift and find out how to support the community of Brooklyn Center. twitter.com/rameradam/stat…

iPhone : You cannot reform or re-train what is happening right now. Modern Day policing needs to be abolished and re-built from the ground up.

iPhone : The Governor’s Executive Order was just announced with that exemption so that folks are able to observe the first night of Taraweeh this evening without fear of arrest.

iPhone : My office reached out to the Minneapolis Mayor and Governor’s offices to urge them to include an exemption to the curfew this evening for travel to and from Ramadan activities/prayer services.

iPhone : As Ramadan starts, let’s reflect on the ways we can better ourselves and protect our communities against injustices, especially our Black brothers and sisters.

Ramadan Mubarak.

iPhone : By the end of the first week I was exhausted, dizzy, I lost so much weight and felt like giving up. The depression was setting in. That’s when Interviews started to flow in and become frequent.
Then Congresswoman Ilhan Omar joined us and things really lifted off the ground

iPhone : We are sick and heartbroken.

In the closing days of Derek Chauvin’s murder trial, Brooklyn Center police killed 20 year old Daunte Wright, another Black man, during a traffic stop.

This violence is a basic part of police interactions with communities of color. It must stop.
