FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 3, 2017

  • On Tuesday, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard welcomed Tima Kurdi, co-founder of the Kurdi Foundation and advocate for refugees worldwide, as her guest to the Presidential Joint Address to Congress on Tuesday. Tima’s sister-in-law Rehanna and two nephews, Alan and Ghalib, drowned en route to Greece on their way to seek refuge from the Syrian war in 2015. If you haven’t seen it already, please take a moment to read this important piece from Tima about her powerful story and why she supports the Stop Arming Terrorists Act. Highlights:
