The Afiya Center

On the morning of January 20th, 2017, The Afiya Center joined NTX Resistance for a press conference in front of Dallas City Hall to announce our demands of the city in the face of the new administration. We stood with our North Texas allies to demand “that the City of Dallas refuse to implement any and all federal policies that pose a threat to the current rights and quality of life of our diverse communities, by which we mean communities which have historically been oppressed or forgotten: Indigenous, immigrants, people of color, Muslims, LGBTQ community, women, working class people, and the poor.”
