AprIL 1st & 2nd / 8AM - 6pm / Washington DC
CAIR-NY invites activists of all national, state and local Muslim organizations, houses of worship and community groups to join this exciting advocacy event in partnership with USCMO.
Expected to draw hundreds of Muslim delegates from across the nation like in previous years, this two-day event is open to representatives of all national, state and local Muslim organizations and communities. The event is designed to connect national, regional and state Muslim organizations, community members with their elected representatives in Congress.
Advocacy day will focus on promoting a legislative agenda in support of equality and social justice issues that will be of benefit to all Americans, regardless of faith or background.
Last years’ event on Capitol Hill took place in May of 2018 and was attended by over 450 delegates from more than 31 states who met with some 250 congressional offices – one third of the House of Representatives and almost half of the Senate.
With the Trump administration it is more important than ever for Muslims to make their voice heard to their political constituents and combat the Islamophobic rhetoric and the anti-Muslim policies being put into place by the Trump administration.
House & Senate: Supporting legislation that respects the rights and dignity of all persons residing in the U.S. in the absence of comprehensive immigration reform. That includes supporting DACA and TPS / opposing the emergency border wall declaration.
House & Senate: Supporting legislation that pushes back against the Trump Administration’s anti-Muslim executive orders and agency policies being misleadingly promoted in the name of national security.
House: Supporting Rep. Judy Chu’s new resolution recognizing the history and contributions of Muslim in the U.S.
Senate: Supporting legislation that promotes the rights of Muslim in Burma and China.
