Rahel Abebe, 29, from Addis-Ababa, Ethiopia, stands in the kitchen of the Migrant Community Center in Beirut, where she spends a lot of her time when she is not working at Nasawiya, a cafe in Beirut. When Rahel was discriminatorily denied entry to the Saint George's Yacht Club and Marina in Beirut in the summer of 2012, the Anti-Racism Movement filed a lawsuit on her behalf. The matter was settled out of court, but more importantly to her, the sign now reads underneath the large writing, "STOP DISCRIMINATION." It was put there by the club owner Fadi Khoury. She has been in Beirut for nearly 14 years and also has a catering service, on the side of her work in a cafe, cooking Ethiopian food, called "Rahel Catering in Beirut."
