PROJECT TYPE: Candidates We Are Kayse

Kayse Jama is an inspirational leader: a Somali refugee born in the countryside who didn’t see a city until the age of eight. After escaping the civil war in Somalia, he established himself in the US, and eventually went on to lead the state-wide multicultural organization Unite Oregon. Mr. Jama now is running to be the first Somali refugee in a US state senate - a feat he is on his way to accomplishing through the power of community organizing using the NationBuilder system.
