  1. Shirin Shirzad:

    Iranian athletes such as Shirin Shirzad and Shiva Amiri had to flee to the West and wrote about their experiences in the #LetUsTalk Campaign, experiences such as discrimination, compulsory hijab, and even assault and sexual harassment.

Though presidents typically stay out of their party’s primaries, Bob Gray pointed out that Donald Trump has already defied that convention and mused that Donald Trump could be a factor in Massachusetts.
