(BOSTON, MA, 1/9/2018) - On Tuesday, January 30, the Massachusetts chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MA) will host its Annual “Massachusetts Muslim Capitol Day.”
WHAT: Massachusetts Muslim Capitol Day
WHEN: Tuesday, January 30, 9 a.m. to Noon
Muslims from across the state will take part in a day of education, engagement and advocacy at a time when their faith and community are being targeted by public figures at the local and national levels who are promoting unconstitutional and discriminatory legislation and policies.
“Our goal is to connect Massachusetts Muslims with their elected leaders and the legislative process. From bills on surveillance and immigration to education and taxes, the actions of the legislature directly impact the Muslim community in Massachusetts on a daily basis,” said CAIR-MA Government Affairs Director Nazia Ashraful. “This is an opportunity for the people of the Commonwealth to urge lawmakers to support residents of all faiths.”
CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
La misión de CAIR es mejorar la comprensión del Islam, fomentar el diálogo, proteger las libertades civiles, capacitar a los musulmanes estadounidenses, y construir coaliciones que promuevan la justicia y la comprensión mutua.
