Event description
One Woman Show- dedicated to the thousands of immigrants who come to this country for a better life. I celebrate you.

About this Event

The Supreme Court upheld Trump Administration's third version of the Muslim Ban with a 5,4 ruling. A very devastating day for so many immigrants from those particular countries.

Reminding Muslim, black, and poor bodies who are fleeing war, violence, prosecution, and poverty that they do not deserve a second chance in life.

The Muslim Ban is unconstitutional and is based on discrimination and bigotry in the name of national security.

My mission will always be to serve my country, create change, and give a voice to people who are often too scared to speak up. America is the only home I know. It gave my family hope, security, and freedom. I hope to continue to fight for people who deserve a second chance at life.

This One Woman Show: will highlight and bring understanding to stories that are often unheard. Through storytelling, poetry, and humor we can create a better world with compassion and empathy. America is GREAT because of immigrants.

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

-Emma Lazarus
