Salaam! Most of you know Nashiha Alam and the amazing work she does with Civic Engagement and such. She is holding an event where YOU can get involved with phone banking and canvassing.
"We will be focused on getting Asian American communities to be more educated and empowered related to issues this upcoming election relating our communities, and ultimately to encourage Asian Americans to vote. Building power for our communities starts with participation in our local elections, and education, which will be focused on police accountability, immigrant rights and the state budget crisis. We want to help Asian American communities feel empowered enough to make their own decisions in the voting booths this November.
We phone bank on Mondays-Thursdays from 5;30-8:30 PM at our office on Lawrence and Broadway. We will be eating dinner together and will have halal options for yall as well 🙂"

Right after our pre-health talk tomorrow, there will be a peace vigil taking place at 8:15pm to stand in solidarity and mourning with the lives that have been lost in the recent and continued attacks against our brothers and sisters in Aleppo.
Please make an effort to show up, we have to make a stand in whatever capacity we can against these atrocities, the following has been shared with me:
Since Friday, roughly 100 children and 223 people have been killed in Aleppo, Syria. Two hospitals have been specifically targeted and are now no longer in service. By the minute, the number of innocent civilian casualties is rising, as the entire city resides in fear. Syria’s largest and most populated city, Aleppo has been victim to nearly 200+ bombings in the last 6 days, ranignig from cluster bombs, to incendiary weapons, and barrel bombs. To give one perspective, a barrel bomb has the ability to completely demolish a small neighborhood. The aftermath of this gruesome offensive carried out by the Syrian government, with the help of Russia, has left grandparents, parents, siblings, and friends devastated at the profuse loss of life.
As the Syrian Government attempts to regain its foothold in Aleppo, it plans to commit any and all crimes possible, indiscriminate of children and innocent civilians that await their fate. We kindly ask you to join the Loyola community in mourning the loss of civilian life in Syria this Thursday night (September 29th) @ 8:15pm. We will be gathering around the Peace Pole on Loyola's Lakeshore Campus. Please try to bring your own candles. Please spread the word.
