Yasmine Taeb is an attorney, activist and the Democratic Candidate for State Senate (VA-35). If elected she will be the first Iranian-American Senator from Virginia.
Yasmine came to the United States as an undocumented immigrant, became a citizen, a lawyer, and a Democratic activist. She has more than 10 years of legislative and policy experience and is running to represent Virginia’s 35th Senate District.
Having immigrated to the United States from Iran while in the second grade, Yasmine has learned to not take for granted the freedoms and opportunities that our country provides. Her background as an immigrant has long shaped her perspective on the significance of civic engagement and the power of voters to lead change for the betterment of their community. Yasmine’s passion for getting involved led her to run for and become the first Muslim woman and Iranian-American to be elected to the Democratic National Committee.
Today, Yasmine is an experienced human rights attorney and serves as Senior Policy Counsel at the Center for Victims of Torture, where she leads the organization’s advocacy and research on refugees and asylum seekers. She fights on the front lines every day against efforts from the White House and Congress to impose cruel, unnecessary rules against refugees and asylum seekers, including President Trump’s infamous “Muslim Ban” and his family separation policies at the border.
Yasmine believes the Democratic Party is at its strongest when it is defending diversity and welcoming new voices into the halls of power. .

If you looked up the word “peace” in the dictionary, it says something about tranquility, & non-violence. If you search for a synonym, it even says a truce. Peace is far more than just a truce.
If we are to achieve peace, we must, every day, make a difference.
Peace is the mother of progress. Without peace, a nation cannot make any progress.
Happy International Peace Day🕊!
Après avoir entendu Aurélien Barrau à la conférence #climax (j'ai adoré son intervention), ma meilleure amie m'a offert ce livre. Discussion entre Aurélien et Louis Schweitzer emmenant à un débat intelligent sur le statut animal. 2 voix différentes, une qui prône la voie de la modération et du réformisme progressif, et l'autre plus partisane d'accélérer la mise en place de textes répressifs et radicaux propres à sauvegarder toutes les espèces, y compris l'homme.
Livre absolument pas moralisateur mais réaliste qui nous offre la possibilité de réfléchir sur la place et la dignité des espèces vivantes sur Terre. .
