Supporting Ilhan Omar
HellHippie supports individuals whom we think are worthy of lots of support! Ilhan Omar is certainly in that group! She is the Congresswoman for MN-05 and is a trail blazer for both Muslim and Women’s rights. She’s also a member of “The Squad” and we support all members of “The Squad” such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,
We stand with Congresswoman Omar as she fights for the same rights that made the USA a great country: equality, liberty and justice!

I am not a Somali representative. I am not a Muslim representative. I am not a millennial representative. I am not a woman representative. I am a representative who happens to have all of these marginalized identities and can understand the intersectionality of all of them in a very unique way.Congresswoman Omar
Hope will be found by understanding that diversity is the essence of the American Dream and why we need each other to fulfill it.
As an immigrant, I truly believed when I was coming to this country that people had the tools necessary to life to live a life that is prosperous, that is just and free. So, every single day, I am shocked with the hypocrisy of this country. That we are the wealthiest nation in the world. But we cannot figure out how to house our homeless people.
We must see others’ struggles as our own, and their success as our success, so we can speak to our common humanity.
We know that when people are civically engaged, when they understand what their rights are, when they understand that in a democracy you can challenge governments, you can challenge policymakers, and you can… actually shape and form future policy, I think it changes the perception that a lot of young people have about where power is.
