Clips and Conversations: Time for Ilhan – In Partnership with Media Impact Funders


Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is the first Somali-American and one of the first two Muslim women to be elected to the U.S. Congress. Just a few years before she became one of the most outspoken new Members of Congress, Representative Ilhan Omar was an underdog candidate seeking to upset a veteran member of the Minnesota State House of Representatives. The recent documentary film, Time for Ilhan, captures the intimate behind-the-scenes drama of an insurgent campaign, tracking the unlikely rise of a Somali refugee to become one of the most prominent voices in a new generation of political leadership. Join us for clips from the film, followed by a conversation.
