PeaceCast: Rashida Tlaib and Palestinian-Americans

Rashida Tlaib of Michigan is the first Palestinian-American woman to serve in Congress.

Public attention focused on a profanity that Tlaib used in reference to President Trump shortly after being sworn in to the 116th Congress. This episode, instead, focuses on the significance of Tlaib’s coming to Washington for the Palestinian-American community, a community that has never enjoyed much political clout in the U.S.

Hanna Hanania, a prominent leader of the community, talks about what it means for Palestinian-American to have a progressive young woman in Congress who proudly asserts her Palestinian identity.
