From Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI):
This week, the Black Alliance for Just Immigration and OkayAfrica have teamed up to deliver a timely PSA video regarding the recent Muslim ban and other executive orders. View the Video here – http://www.okayafrica.com/
The spokesperson, Yasmin Yonis, is a fierce human rights activist, writer author and speaker. Yasmin and her family were refugees, resettling in the U.S. from Somalia. As both a vocal and visible advocate and a Muslim Somali woman, Yasmin’s voice is much needed and necessary, as too little attention has been paid to the way African migrants are uniquely impacted by the ban, which targets African countries and refugee resettlement.
We want the video to be shared far and wide, especially with the communities most impacted. We are also asking Black communities, media and allies to support the video rollout, and also serve as a community to Yasmin. Being visible and outspoken can often invite adverse attention and trolling. Let’s flood the timelines and comment sections with positive, supportive messages of love and power.
