Minnesota’s Horn of Africa diaspora communities, the largest in the United States, are asking us to help our country hear their voice as they try to peacefully end the horrific abuses occurring in Ethiopia and throughout the Horn of Africa. Learn how you can help the voices for peaceful resolution be heard and how Minnesotans can help lead the way in changing U.S. foreign aid policies to support freedom and not oppressors in the Horn of Africa.
Join Congressman Keith Ellison and others for a forum discussing the human rights abuses occurring in the Horn of Africa and the impact of United States foreign aid to Ethiopia which is diverted by the Ethiopian government to practice human rights abuses to oppress political opposition.
Date/Time: Saturday, April 9 – 3:00-5:00 pm
Location: Plymouth Congregational Church (1900 Nicollet Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55403)
