In a historic set of victories, six Muslim candidates have won their Bay Area elections, including the first Muslim member of the Sunnyvale City Council.

“Today marks a time for Muslims in California and everywhere to celebrate our identities and accomplishments as a community,” said Zahra Billoo, Executive Director at CAIR-SFBA. “It’s time to finally harness our political voice through leaders who are aware of and invested in addressing the unique issues faced by American Muslims.”
