“One of us is going to Washington” - what Habon Abdulle of WOW Network wants you to understand about Ilhan Omar’s election.
Great news about the November election voter turnout
The first woman who Habon Abdulle of WOW Network recruited to run for office was Ilhan Omar.
"After the election, many of us felt that we can put our bags down. We are here to stay, and now we have a stake in the game. While we recognize this election is not presidential, the effect on marginalized people’s emotions are similar, as prejudice is confronted by elected representation. " - Habon Abdulle
