Last month, veteran Muslim journalist Dalia Al-Aqidi faced Twitter censorship after inviting Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to an interview. Both women are refugees and Muslim Americans, which would have made for an eye-to-eye conversation between the leaders. However, Ilhan Omar ignored the requests from another Muslim American woman, which came on the heels of also spurning interview questions from American Muslim human rights leader Ani Zonneveld.

In response, Dalia Al-Aqidi headed to Ilhan Omar’s district in Minneapolis, Minnesota and invited reporters to a sit-down conversation close to the 18th anniversary of September 11th attacks where “somebody did something” (according to Omar).
