Registration is now open for the 10th Annual Muslim Day at the Capitol (MDAC)!
Here are 5 Reasons Why YOU should participate:
1) MDAC is a space where the Muslim community can demonstrate political power and will.
Harnessing the diverse voices of hundreds of Muslims to proactively address issues of economic justice, racial justice, housing, and immigration, ensures our concerns are incorporated within the State of California.
2) This is the 10th Anniversary of MDAC.
Over the past 10 years, the Muslim community through MDAC has successfully pushed legislators on key issues from housing justice and immigrant rights to police reform and education access policies.
3) MDAC is the State’s largest Muslim civic engagement program.
MDAC is an opportunity for the community to unite in advocating on the urgent issues that affect the state of California. What happens in California sets the tone for greater political consciousness and organizing by Muslims around the country.
4) MDAC provides an opportunity to put our faith into action.
Our faith teaches us that righteousness is in the practice of serving our community. This year being so tough on so many in our community, MDAC serves as an opportunity to demonstrate how we can use our faith to advocate on important issues like covid-safety, economic recovery, and social justice issues.
5) MDAC is a virtual program.
In years past, MDAC was a full day of legislative meetings, town halls, and press conferences that required travel to Sacramento. This year, we have transformed the program to accommodate the challenges of the pandemic to create a virtual program dedicated to advocacy, organizing, and education.
