1/ Yesterday, I attended a forum hosted for the #Muslim community by some of its biggest and most developed organizations (@emgageactionmi, @MIMuslimCouncil, @APIAVoteMI).

2/ In the week of the travel ban, and the week where @ocasio2018 obliterated a 20-year incumbent by listening to & speaking with communities of color, you’d think establishment Dems like @gretchenwhitmer would have learned a lesson. IGNORE COMMUNITIES OF COLOR AT YOUR OWN PERIL.
3/ I know for a fact that @gretchenwhitmer showed up for a Muslim community fundraiser a few weeks ago. But she didn’t show up to hear the community’s concerns and share her perspective at a forum hosted for us by Muslim leaders.

Don’t take the money if you don’t want the vote.
4/ This is just the latest in a long campaign of forgetting about, or ignoring communities of color. See @gretchenwhitmer’s first ad:
5/ This is why so many communities of color are worried about a @MichiganDems all-white ticket and a @gretchenwhitmer administration. No representation means no voice.
6/ It’s alright, though - we’re organizing, we’re building, and we’ll show you why voices of color matter on August 7th.

See you at the polls.
