Building a Democracy Movement

Monique Salhab is an Iraq War Veteran, who currently presides on the National Board of Directors of Veterans For Peace and is also the board of directors’ Secretary. She is a social activist working in Albuquerque on specific issues of immigration and Muslim Ban 3.0. Ms. Salhab also speaks to middle school, high school student and the local immigrant population regarding the Truth in Recruiting and its consequences. Ms. Salhab identifies as a queer veteran woman of colour. These labels are not important to her because she wishes them to be, but because of how society forces her to exist within its marginalised structure.
