I was invited to attend the ACLU National Conference, which coincided with my birthday. Instead of throwing a traditional sweet 16, I asked my parents if I could attend the conference in mid-June Washington D.C. The conference did not disappoint.
Defending our rights to equality, liberty, and justice
Last week, the ACLU of Virginia partnered with the Islamic Center of Virginia to host a #NoMuslimBanEver Community Forum, an event for people affected by the U.S. Supreme Court decision to uphold President Trump's Muslim ban to come together and learn more about its legal ramifications.
I'm incredibly grateful to the ACLU of Virginia for giving me the opportunity to work toward a more free and equal Virginia. The people I’ve come to know in this organization are passionate about their work. They challenge each other every day, and they are driven by the common goal of liberty.
