I was so excited when she announced today that she was running for #potus in #2020. I had to put my spin on her #campaign. I chose to do an elegant #pointedpencalligraphy with a swash of gold paint because while refined she will turn the #statusquo sideways. Kamala Harris is a champion for women’s rights, a relentless #truthseeker, and a heavy weight in fighting for the #middleclass. She is a #trailblazer and she inspires me daily. @kamalaharris kamalaharris you are what this country represents and I’m so excited to work to get you elected! #demwomen #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #medicareforall #dreamers #daca #shesourvoice #challengeforcesofhate #kamalaharris #kamalaharris2020 #politicalcalligraphy #areyoureadyforthis

I took this photo inside the All-American Club and Elks Lodge, on West Superior Street. Membership is low in both clubs, so they decided to start sharing one building between the two of them. One guy told me that he blames low membership on the new DUI laws. The All-American club was formed in the olden days of West Duluth, when there were different clubs for different groups of immigrants - The Italian American Club, The Polish Club, the German Club. The All-American Club was supposed to be a place where your ethnicity wasn't important. I took this photo on a Tuesday, when they normally serve a community dinner. That night it was lasagna. #westduluth #rememberduluth #overburdenoverlook #4x5film #filmphotographic #immigrantsmakeamericagreat

Almost a year ago I had inquired about a job position with CBP as I have always been interested in working for the federal government and wanted to explore all my options. Every day I see more and more atrocities on our southern border caused by the shameful actions of both CBP & ICE. I figured this would be an appropriate way to show how I feel about the matter. Between the dumping out life saving water, the tearing children from the arms of their parents, hundreds of sexual assault allegations, falsely accusing minorities of being gang members, turning away asylum seekers, not providing timely medical attention to those in their custody (which in some cases resulted in death), etc.. I am ashamed to say I ever even inquired. 🔆 #staywoke #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #immigrantswelcome #immigration #nohumanisillegal #familiesbelongtogether #cbp

Being “aware” yourself isn’t enough. It’s so important (even more so) to educate our children. #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #educateyourself #educateyourkids #bookstoread #bookstagram #mlk

"In the end we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." - Martin Luther King Jr. If social media existed in 1963 and we were all around at the time, would you have simply liked MLK's posts or would you have actually joined him at the March on Washington? Think about it. There is so much going on today and it really seems like no one's paying attention. Friends, it is not the time to be silent. Enough is enough. We need to make our voices heard and stand up for what we believe in. If you'd like to take action, let me know because it'd be amazing to have you join me at the next march or the next time I go on a water drop. ❤️✊

That’s what I’m talking bout! No more borders on indigenous land!✊🏽🌵🦅🌞🌞🔥

no country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of contributions of half of its citizens. michelle obama

These words spoken by #mlk really resonate with me, especially because in my city, NYC: . -1 in every 5 people is an immigrant . -1 in every 6 people has at least one immigrant parent #childofimmigrants #nycborn #indianamerican #immigrantsmakeamericagreat 🇺🇸

One of the highlights of my professional career with no exception has been this semester, as I am finally teaching the "LGBTQ Issues across the Lifespan" course to our doctoral students at Adler University. It's been so well received and popular that I have been asked to teach it again next semester so that our PsyD students leaving campus in July for their internships can take the class. Some of the most emotionally moving experiences I've had in the classroom these last 25 years have occurred just in the last few weeks, as my graduate students are listening to the Making Gay History podcast -- 4 episodes weekly -- and then writing weekly reflections, which we discuss in class and apply to the developmental and clinical concerns of LGBTQ people. What students have shared, how genuine they have been in their reflections, the laughs and tears we have shared are all an experience I won't soon forget. If you are LGBTQ identified or are one of our allies, you owe it to yourself to listen to these podcasts. You will be a better, more informed person, as a result of listening to these oral histories. #makinggayhistory #mlk #queernarratives #lgbtq #queer #gay #lesbian #transgender #bisexual #lgbtactivist #queercouples #gaychicago #psychology #gayprofessor #oralhistory #socialjustice #psyd #intersectionality #blacklivesmatter #brownlivesmatter #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #refugeeswelcome #diversity #nohate #democracy #bayardrustin #kaylahusen #barbaragittings #daughtersofbilitis #mattachinesociety

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.” MLK I was admitted to the United States 18 years ago today as an immigrant.

01/21/1999 🇺🇸 The first picture was taken the moment my parents and I arrived in America for the first time. The second picture was taken at my first school here. And the the third, well... all I can say is how lucky I am to even be here, to even be alive, to think, speak, and practice my religion freely. It’s quite a beautiful thing and I’m thankful for it every single day. We often take advantage of this freedom, we forget that in other places on this planet, it’s not commonplace to be able to say what you feel, do what you want, and to be of any religion you wish. We must embrace the diversity these values entail, not try and shut it down 🇺🇸 . . . . . . . . . . #selma #bosnian #bosanka #americanimmigrant #trisigma #sigmasigmasigma #balkan #balkangirl #immigrant #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #juststrongambassador #seattle_igers #muslimgirl #proudimmigrant #womensmarch2019 #womensmarch #marchforourlives #balkanbred #balkanbossbabe

With the lunar eclipse comes the high tides. This is what happened at a byland in the Bay Area as they received the King tide, a 9.7ft wave @11:40 am, tamed by the vegetation and the natural buffers in the coast. All hiking paths were inundated and we got to see wildlife like rabbits fleeing their inundated habitat. I’m continuously amazed by how interconnected we all are, and yet we still fight to have those divisions as human kind. #kingtide #kingtides #californiacoast #wildlife #waves #marshes #rain #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #knowyourwildlife #womenempowerment #heretostay #optoutside #latinaoutdoors #latinxoutdoors #latinooutdoors #birdwatching #lunareclipse #eclipse

This picture was taken right after I got done helping out immigrants. I was exhausted & overwhelmed with emotions, wondering how I can do anything without feeling guilty. I wish I could do more. I’m posting this because this is me doing more. ICE is dropping off immigrants at local Arizona churches & when they don’t have room to take hundreds of people they drop them off at the Phoenix bus station. They don’t speak English, they are hungry, tired & not told how long they will be there. If you swipe to the last page you will meet a little girl who traveled all the way from Guatemala, mostly on foot with her dad! These people were so hungry. I will continue to help my people because my great grandparents were these very people at some point! . . . . . #blessed #blessedlife #blessedtobeablessing #give #helpingothers #love #peace #makeadifference #volunteer #arizona #phoenix #understanding #migente #immigrants #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #america #selfie #curvy #loveyourself #novababe #latina #mexican #borderwall #weareone #help

Dana, a baby elephant and a mahout who gave her a ring he fashioned from a reed. Congrats on the engagement!! #repost #laosangelesroots @danadang ・・・ When traveling throughout Southeast Asia, make sure you visit elephant sanctuaries. Many places will lie and say they are rescues, but are not. Do your research! These gentle giants deserve better from us humans. We don’t deserve elephants (or dogs). There are only a few that I can vouch for: @mandalao_elephants @elephantsbylouise @elephantnaturepark @phuketelephantsanctuary. A few key signs to look out for are: NO riding elephants, NO bathing with elephants, mahouts do NOT use hooks, chains, or ropes on elephants, and they get to sleep in a big enclosure. Be smart. The experience is unforgettable. Along with those trekking boots. Those will also be unforgettable. #fashun

First meeting of the year! Let’s gather, check in and make plans. All #laosangelesroots and any LA/OC Laotians welcome. First hour is mingling and mixing, second hour is a group discussion. Hope to see you 1/31!

Trip of a lifetime. #repost @iamsaeng ・・・ SAVANNAKHET, LAOS January 21, 2019 . At this moment, emotions are still high from the first time meeting family in Laos. I had help with the guesthouse staff to reach my aunt with her Lao phone number. She told me she was on a tuktuk to my place. I got nervous. I didn’t know what to expect. I’ve always wondered what it was like for other kids to have a relationship with their grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. I didn’t have any of that in my life. It was only me, my parents, and two sisters growing up. I see a tuktuk approach the guest house and I start walking out. It was like time stood still as we made eye contact. They only knew me from pictures as a 2 year old kid. The eldest cousin came up to me first and gave me a big hug. My aunt followed and recognized me from photos. She immediately gave me a hug and tears from both of us started flowing. All this was strange to me since I did not grow up giving hugs to my immediate family but it felt so natural. It was family I never thought I’d ever see. My strength and curiosity brought me across the ocean. I had to return to understand my parents and myself. I stare at my little 3 year old cousin, Galapao, named after one of my favorite foods growing up, a Lao steamed bun. It was like staring in a mirror as I recall myself in my 2 year old photo at the refugee camp. This is the result of war. It was a homecoming. #eatpraylaove

Let’s face it. Many of us become all too comfortable in our own lives to speak up on the issues that matter. We fail our brothers and sisters in Christ because we are not directly affected by the injustice still happening today. It’s easier to turn off the news and politics because we feel like we can’t do anything to change it. . Today, I heard a woman speak at an MLK event who said, “we have to BE the dream” that Martin Luther King Jr. spoke about. We cannot forget his words, and what so many people marched against; or we are bound to repeat it. We cannot let OUR CHILDREN forget it. . . Rise up. Stand together. Fight for what you know in your heart is right, not just for yourself and your family, but for EVERYONE. #spreadlove. 💗 . . . . #martinlutherkingjr #mlkday #martinlutherking #martinlutherkingday #martinlutherkingquotes #spreadlovenothate #unitedinchrist #standtogether #riseup #letsgetreal #womensmarch #womensempowerment #equalrights #lovethyneighbor #nathanphillips #lovetrumpshate #mondaymotivation #mondayquotes #weshallovercome #brothersandsisters #blacklivesmatter #alllivesmatter #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #immigrantlivesmatter #refugeelivesmatter

An American hero whose legacy lives on stronger than ever specially during these tumultuous times: A divided and unjust America whose “president” espouses hate, bigotry, racism and the scapegoating of immigrants. But Dr. King’s dream of justice and equality will in the end crush such bigotry. That’s the spirit upon which this nation was founded.

Nearly 30 years ago, these two young men became lifelong friends. One the son of immigrant parents from China and the other the son of immigrant parents from Ghana who came to this country to provide better opportunities for their families. Today they stand on the shoulders of their parents. One as a commercial pilot and the other as a trial lawyer. #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #personalinjurylawyer #commercialpilot

On this Martin Luther King Jr. Day I would like to share his wise words. During these difficult times, people continue to turn a blind eye on what is happening to immigrants. The news place the words “Alien” and “Illegal” together all too often, depicting my people and I as criminals for wanting to have a better life. I had the privilege of coming here legally back in 2008. A day does not go by where I don’t think about my people and what they’re suffering through. I see news shared of my people in the caravan where they die trying to get here, and the comment section is filled with people saying that they wouldn’t have died had they stayed at their country. Yes, they wouldn’t have died if they had stayed at their country, they would have likely been murdered by the gangs and actual criminals that rule over the corrupt government. There have been several times when people have told me to not listen to the news and live a “good life.” Why should I not listen to the news? Why should I not take the blindfold off and see what is happening? Why should I pretend all is well simply because it isn’t affecting me? No. I won’t turn a blind eye, I won’t stop listening to the news, I won’t stop listening to the truth. Go ahead and live your life of privilege and gold. I won’t stand back and watch as the current president makes my people have the title of a “criminal.” I stand with my people. #martinlutherkingjr #godiswatching #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #standupagainsthate

Our guest for Episode 11 of The Alien Chronicles releasing on Wednesday January 23rd is Reshad Ahmadi .Reshad was born and raised in Afghanistan. He worked for ten years on U.S.-funded re-construction projects in Afghanistan, until insurgents targeted him for his affiliation with the United States. Reshad is here on a Special Immigration Visa (SIV) to the United States. These visas are made available to those who have worked two or more years for the U.S. government and military in Afghanistan and are at risk of violence because of it. Reshad is now an Assistant Project Manager at a local Tectonic Engineering & Surveying. Reshad is also an Ambassador of the Westchester Refugee Initiative, helping to spread the word about refugees. Given our similar ethnic backgrounds, we discussed a lot including politics, food and culture!

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” As we celebrate the legacy of the icon Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we should reflect on the values he propelled. We must remember we are all in this world together, regardless of race, religion or immigrant status. Hate is too much to bear. Even when we cannot do great things to spread love to each other, we should do small things in a great way. At #ralobiohalaw, there’s no such person as an illegal alien. 🙏🏽 #mlkday #mlkday2019 #stopfamilyseparation #nofamilyseparation
