Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer serves New York with fellow Dem and native New Yorker Kirsten Gillibrand. He was elected into office in the Fall of 1998. The NY Times reported that Senator Schumer is an avid cook, and is known for his "Omnibus Loaf", a meatloaf recipe that includes a ground mix of veal, beef and pork, surrounded by pieces of barbecue chicken. 🐖🐄🐓😬 #100senators100letters 82/100 . . . . . #handmadeletters #letterwriting #snailmail #calligraphy #lettering #handwritten #dstype #designspiration #acreativedc #resist #nobannowall #unitedagainsthate #lovetrumpshate #notmypresident #taxationwithoutrepresentation #makeyourvoiceheard #strongertogether
So, what do you get out of coming to RHR school? Well, if you're a teacher, such as Patricia, there's a modest stipend to help compensate you for your time. If you're a refugee, like Faduma, there's the chance to improve your English, which can help you get a job and eventually become a US citizen. But there's something even better. In a world where xenophobia, ignorance and even hatred have regained accepted status in public discourse and public policy, there's a chance to connect with human beings who, on the surface, seem to have nothing in common with you. Their clothes, their language, their religion, the paths that brought them to this shared space confuse and contradict your notions of normality. But soon you discover that these people feel the same joy and sorrow that you do. They love just as deeply, laugh just as hard and dream just as fervently. And by coming here and sharing this space with them, you realize that together you've supplied a tiny bit more oxygen for that ember of hope that the world can get better. And that's more than enough to bring you back tomorrow. #WithRefugees #nobannowall #letthemin #lovearmy #huffpostgram #whatamericalookslike #ROCwelcomesall #artforrefugees #unitedagainsthate #lovearmyforsomalia

He brought Kona coffee and macadamia nut chocolates to help ease fatigue. 🌎☕️🍫Senator Schatz represents his state with fellow Dem Mazie Hirono. #100senators100letters 81/100 . . . . . #handmadeletters #letterwriting #snailmail #calligraphy #lettering #handwritten #dstype #designspiration #acreativedc #resist #nobannowall #unitedagainsthate #lovetrumpshate #notmypresident #taxationwithoutrepresentation #makeyourvoiceheard #strongertogether

(1/2) Ahmed didn’t know the English word, “hero,” until last week. But now he knows that’s the term to use when someone asks about his father. While Ahmed was living in Somalia nine years ago, his father was still living in the village where Ahmed had grown up. Somalia’s civil war had been raging for more than 25 years, and the jihadist militant group, Al-Shabaab, had formed amid the chaos. Al-Shabaab specialized in recruiting boys and young men, but Ahmed’s father was determined that no one from his village would join the brutal guerrilla fighters who had aligned themselves with Al-Qaeda. Ahmed says his father wasn’t a particularly powerful elder, but that didn’t stop him from mounting a one-man campaign to counsel the youth against joining Al-Shabaab. His neighbors warned Ahmed’s father that he was putting his life in danger, but he didn’t stop. When Al-Shabaab fighters came to the village, Ahmed’s father still wouldn’t back down. “Al Shabaab said to my father, ‘We are big; we do not want to kill you. Please stop what you’re doing,” Ahmed said. “My father said, ‘No! Until I die!’” Ahmed says his father received three warnings from Al-Shabaab. They would not offer a fourth. When someone suggested that his father had died a hero, Ahmed, who speaks enough English to be interviewed without an interpreter, replied, “I was looking for the word. Hero.” Heroism carries consequences, however. When Ahmed learned of his father’s death, he sneaked back to the village at night to pay his respects. While there, neighbors warned him not to stay. “They said, ‘(Al-Shabaab) are looking for you, to kill you,’” Ahmed said. “’Please, run away!’” Ahmed returned to Mogadishu and his government job, but he soon learned he wasn’t safe there, either. He came home from work one day to find that his wife, children and mother had left. Neighbors told him that Al-Shabaab fighters were tracking him. “That’s when I decided, that’s the last I’ll see all my family together,” said Ahmed. They had a quick, tearful goodbye at the outskirts of the city, and Ahmed set off on foot, alone. #WithRefugees #nobannowall #letthemin #lovearmy #huffpostgram #whatamericalookslike #unitedagainsthate
(2/2) Somehow, he had to make it to the Ethiopia border, about 700 miles away, where he could ask to be admitted to a refugee camp. Ahmed walked about 20 miles before a trucker offered him a ride and a hiding place in the sleeping compartment of his cab. Ahmed piled the driver’s clothes around himself, so that he couldn’t be seen from outside. He was safer in the truck than he had been on foot, but his worries were far from over. Al-Shabaab fighters frequently stop trucks. Sometimes, they steal cargo. Sometimes, they steal the trucks. Ahmed spent the hours fighting to sleep, to escape the fear and sorrow that gripped him. Ahmed made it to a refugee camp, but part of him remained behind in Mogadishu. In his sleep, those final days played over and over again, like a movie running in a theater with no exit. Sometimes even during the day, he’d be lost. The men he lived with in the camp relieved him of cooking duties when he left the stove burning and nearly set their living quarters on fire. “They said to me, ‘”Your head is not here to cook,’” says Ahmed. “When I was remembering the killing of my father and missing of my family, I forget everything else. When you and your family are (together), you’re home, and when you’re alone, it’s not the same.” Ahmed is safe now. He’s happy to be improving his English through RHR, and he’s looking for a job. But he’s more alone than ever. He used to be able to reach his wife by phone, but his family also fled their home, and he can no longer contact her. He has gotten through to his mother a few times, but she has no news for him about the rest of his family. “When your family is around you, you cannot think because you’re happy,” he says. “But when you’re alone, you’re worrying about them, and how they might get to the US. Maybe someday I will get some source (of information). Until then, I am praying. I pray one day they will get here.” -30- 📸: @lindeeohlman #WithRefugees #nobannowall #letthemin #lovearmy #huffpostgram #whatamericalookslike #ROCwelcomesall #artforrefugees #unitedagainsthate #lovearmyforsomalia

Senator Ben Sasse was one of the first "NeverTrump"-ers, announcing that he would not support Trump if he turned out to be the Republican candidate. And despite his strong criticism of Trump, Sasse made clear that we would not vote for Clinton either, but instead would cast his vote for a third more conservative option. Senator Sasse serves the state of Nebraska with fellow Republican Deb Fischer. He was elected into office in 2014. #100senators100letters 80/100 . . . . . #handmadeletters #letterwriting #snailmail #calligraphy #lettering #handwritten #dstype #designspiration #acreativedc #resist #nobannowall #unitedagainsthate #lovetrumpshate #notmypresident #taxationwithoutrepresentation #makeyourvoiceheard #strongertogether

This senator for Vermont needs no introduction. According to a recent poll Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in the US and his podcast "The Bernie Sanders Show" is on the iTunes top ten. Will he be the one to save the Democrats from their existential crisis? Believe it or not, he is junior senator to Senator Patrick Leahy, having been elected to serve only in 2006. Leahy was elected in 1974. #100senators100letters 79/100 . . . . . #handmadeletters #letterwriting #snailmail #calligraphy #lettering #handwritten #dstype #designspiration #acreativedc #resist #nobannowall #unitedagainsthate #lovetrumpshate #notmypresident #taxationwithoutrepresentation #makeyourvoiceheard #strongertogether
