During a White House press briefing, theGrio asked National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby about the Biden administration’s listening sessions with grassroots communities, particularly Arab and Muslim populations, as tension and outrage continue amid Israel’s war against Hamas in Gaza. Kirby acknowledged that the White House is listening to these communities.
