4th Annual National Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C.

 

The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) is excited to annouce the hosting of the fourth annual National Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., from May 7th and 8th, 2018.

USCMO invites participants from all national, state and local Muslim organizations, mosques and community groups to join this important event.

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.

USCMO’S 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. 

Prior to the event, a series of online  training seminars will also be offered to registered participants on effective advocacy techniques and on the day’s advocacy issues.

Highlights of the agenda:

  • On the first day of the event delegates will participate in training seminars, discuss the importance of selected advocacy issues and meet with elected members of congress, office staff and committee representatives.
  • The second day will consist of additionally scheduled meetings with elected members of congress, office staff and committee representatives.

Last years’ event on Capitol Hill took place in May of 2017 and was attended by 450 delegates from more than 30 states who met with some 230 congressional offices – one third of the House of Representatives and almost half of the Senate.

With the current 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 President Trump adminstration.
