Rep. Ilhan Omar: Representing the Underrepresented 7:00-8:30 pm
Wednesday, January 17, 2018, 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM
Minnesota Tech Center
1100 Washington Ave. S.
Join us as State Representative Ilhan Omar (District 60B) talks about her first year in the Minnesota House of Representatives. Omar will share what she’s learned, the new (and sometimes unexpected) relationships she’s made, and how she’s suddenly had to speak for not just her district, but for immigrants and refugees all over the United States. Born in Somalia, Omar and her family fled the country’s civil war when she was 8. They spent four years in a Kenyan refugee camp before coming to the U.S. in the 1990s.
