Muslim Woman Running for U.S. Senate in Arizona

Deedra Hill Abboud , a muslim woman is running for U.S. Senate in Arizona. Deedra has worked with terror linked groups CAIR & MAS. Deedra’s campaign slogan is “United, We Rise.” During her speech when she announced she is running for US Senate, Deedra stood in front of an upside down Arizona Flag, and said “I am with the growing majority of Arizonans who know that anger and resistance can only take us so far. We need to unite to move our families forward. We need to unite to move Arizona forward. We need to unite to move America forward.”

According to reports Deedra also said “We have a president who wants to ban refugees. Ban refugees who are experiencing atrocities that, thank God, America has really never experienced. And we never want to experience those. But at the same time, we have a president that is singularly partnershiping with Russia to bomb the very people who are already dying on the ground and we are denying refuge to.”

According to Deedra’s website she is a “Phoenix-based attorney and founder of the leadership consulting firm, the Global Institute of Solution Oriented Leadership, she is highly respected for her community leadership and advocacy. Deedra is a recipient of the Martin Luther King Jr. Diversity Award in Tempe and the Martin Luther King Jr. Award presented by the Human Relations Commission in Phoenix.”

Deedra’s site also says “After 9/11, she launched and served as director for the Arizona chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-AZ) from 2001 to 2005. She was director of the Arizona chapter of the Muslim American Society’s Freedom Foundation, a Washington-based civil rights group, from 2005 to 2009. Deedra has also served on the boards of the Tempe Community Action Agency, Voices for Civil Dialogue, and the AZ Coalition on Migrant Rights.”

Listed under “Policy position” on Deedra’s site:

“Our state has been on the frontlines of the fight to protect American immigrant families. With years of working in civil rights defense, Deedra is committed to continue her work to defend attacks from the federal government to lock up, break up and ban immigrant families. She strongly believes that Arizona’s values of compassion and justice can lead the country to commonsense immigration reform.”

“Across the country, we are seeing attacks on women’s sexual freedom, from the defunding of programs allowing women to receive vital health care services and information, even when they cannot afford them, to employers being given the right to determine the reproductive choices available to their employees.”

“The LGBTQ community and their allies have fought long and hard for equality in Arizona and the United States. Marriage equality is the law of the land but many discrimination laws stop short of actual protection. We are also seeing, once again, more religiously based rhetoric and laws targeting the LGBTQ community across the country.”

“Law enforcement history in the United States has had its ups and downs but the one method that has consistently worked is community policing. Knowing the community municipalities serve helps decrease crime and de-escalate tensions. Adequate resources need to be provided for our police departments so that community policing can be reintroduced across the nation in order to avoid the situations we are hearing about all too often.”
