The peace community rallied quickly to declare outrage that the US government denied Malalai Joya's initial visa request. Today, a US Embassy granted her a visa, and she is on her way to Boston to begin a speaking tour to promote the second edition of her memoir. Though she missed dates in New York and DC, she was able to connect with audiences virtually during those events. Thank you, CODEPINKers who responded to the national call in day yesterday for your support of Ms. Joya! Check the upcoming dates of Joya's tour to see her in person.
