No Muslim Registry

I went for a walk down Pennsylvania Avenue with our Muslim brothers and sisters about the Muslim registry. It was organized by MoveOn.org and DRUM.

How to Support the Water Protectors Right Now

En Route to Standing Rock

I write this as I’m sitting at the breakfast table of Abbi and Ben Heimach-Snipes in Chicago, where we stayed last night after six of us drove from New York City to Chicago. Once we got here we met Colleen Earp, who flew in to Chicago from Richmond, Virginia. In a few hours we will be commissioned at the Friendship Presbyterian Church in Chicago and then the six of us from New York, plus Ben and Colleen will head toward Minneapolis, where we’ll have dinner at the Church of All Nations and pick up three others in our delegation before heading on to Standing Rock.
