As-Salamu Alaykum! This is a time of great urgency for the American Muslim community. Our community and our faith have become targets of hate in the current presidential campaign. Bigoted and unconstitutional schemes targeting Muslims continue to be proposed by politicians and pundits.
With only weeks left before the most important presidential election in our lifetimes, now is the time for the Muslims of Pennsylvania to make our voices heard by participating in CAIR-Philadelphia’s Second Annual “Muslim Capitol Day” (MCD) in Harrisburg on Tuesday, October 25th, 2016, 9:00am – 3:00pm.
You will be travelling to Harrisburg for the unique opportunity of meeting with Pennsylvania’s highest state officials and your elected representatives. You will also be making a visible statement to the media and the general public that American Muslims are now, and forever will be, full participants in our country’s political process, and will not be intimidated into silence by the voices of intolerance.
Please distribute widely by both email and hard copy to your friends and colleagues. The success of Muslim Capitol Day depends upon your participation.
