URGENT: Support the Long Island Muslim Society

American Muslims are facing constant push-back against mosque construction, and New York is no exception. On August 17, 2017, The Long Island Muslim Society is appealing to the Town of Hempstead to allow for the expansion of their Mosque, and make much-needed improvements for the women’s section. This should not be a question, this should not be a debate, but sadly, in 2017, mosques must still fight to simply exist.

Let the Town of Hempstead know that New Yorkers support their Muslim neighbors!

I write in support of the application for the expansion of the Long Island Muslim Society. The Society, which includes a mosque, is an important spiritual home to over 250 Long Island Muslims, and is actively involved in interfaith and charity work. This expansion project aims to better accommodate existing female congregants, who need adequate space for their prayers. I urge the Board to support the community and allow the expansion of Long Island Muslim Society.
