<Linda Sarsour> What Linda means to us and the hateful attacks on her. That's the question of my report in AlterNet, thanks to Jan Frel. It responds to the nasty essay by Dov Hikind in the New York Daily News. You can read my report here: http://www.alternet.org/world/linda-sarsour-resistance-hero.

Thanks to MaxAkiva Eldar and Elisabeth Bumiller for their stories on Hikind, and to Linda for spending time talking to me and letting me shadow her. Thanks to Monte Belmonte and Bill Newman for having us on WHMP, to Lisa Armstrong for Linda's the visit to Smith College and Laura Briggs for her visit to UMass Amherst. Thanks to Lydia Brown and Lucy Nalpathanchil for having Linda on WNPR.

Thanks to Trinity Sjp and the Women's March CT - We March On.
