Muslim Appreciation & Awareness Month – Thank Your Assemblymember

On Monday, August 1, California Assemblymember Bill Quirk (D-Hayward) introduced HR 59 which proclaimed August 2016 as Muslim Awareness and Appreciation Month. He was joined by 61 co-authors and the measure passed by a voice vote. During these difficult times of increased Islamophobia and political candidates utilizing anti-Muslim rhetoric, this is an unprecedented show of support for our community from our legislators. As important as it is that we hold candidates and elected officials accountable when they take action opposing our community, it is even more important that we thank them when they stand with us. Please take one minute below to thank the elected officials who made this possible.
