I remember glossy-brown countertops, dim lights, and cigarette smoke in the afternoon.
The smell of liquor, old men in tired flannels,
stretched suspenders, and gray hairs, huddled in a crowd at the booth. 914 more words

The Advocates For Human Rights - All Posts

Jennifer Prestholdt reblogged this on The Human Rights Warrior and commented:

The foreword from The Advocates for Human Rights' report Voices from Silence: Personal Accounts of the Long-term Impact of 9/11. Published in February 2007, "Voices of Silence" details the impact of 9/11 on the lives of immigrants, refugees, and religious minorities in Minnesota. It documents personal stories of fear and discrimination in a post-9/11 environment and contextualizes them with an overview of laws and policies that have affected these communities. As a staff member of the organization that published this report, I was privileged to play a small part in the drafting and editing of this report. September 11, 2014 was a day of terrible tragedy, on every level -personal, community and national. We must always honor the memory of those who lost their lives to acts of terrorism, as well as the courage of those who worked so hard to help others. But neither should we forget what happened in the United States after the terrible events of 9/11 and the impact that fear and discrimination had on a personal, community, and national level. #NeverForget
