In this special, we talk to Ousmane Drame, Imam of Masjid Al-Farooq located in the city’s South Side, who speaks on the current crisis in Mali. We also speak to Bukie Adekoje, UAO’s Research and Policy Associate, who speaks on UAO’s efforts to get Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Malians, and how to get involved through advocacy work.
