Muslim Day At The Capitol (MDAC) 2021

(Virtual Day At The Capitol)

 

 

Join hundreds of Minnesotans at the upcoming Muslim Day At The Capitol 2021 as we come together to discuss challenges facing our communities and steps we can take with our legislature.

This past year has been a trying one for the Muslim community. With the blessings of Allah, the Muslim community has grown in many ways. But perhaps the most foundational blessing of 2020 is to show us just how powerful we are when we come together. Yet, there is still so much to do. Racism & Islamophobia are alive and well in the very political fabric of our nation. We need to protect the rights of immigrants. We need to protect renters from eviction. We need to strengthen voting access. We need to tackle rising Islamophobia and white nationalism.

This year, 2021, comes with both political responsibilities and opportunities in Minnesota. The redistricting of the entire MN electoral districts is taking place this year. As well, our duty as Muslim is to represent and give our message of Islam to the rest of the world.

The 17th Muslim Day at the Capitol (MDAC) is on Tuesday, February 16th , 2021.

Event Outline:

  1. All attendees are invited to the virtual rally at 6:00 Pm.
  2. Faith agenda grounding is held at 7:00 Pm.
  3. Attendees are placed into small groups to meet with their legislators about our faith agenda. We are making appointments on behalf of attendees as of now. Appointments start at 7:30 PM
