***MUST REGISTER: bit.ly/mdac20***
Muslim Day at the Capitol (MDAC) 2020 is here! In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy of social activism , we’re partnering with Somali Health Board to host MDAC 2020 on MLK Day, Monday, January 20th, 2020 at the Capitol in Olympia, Washington.
Last year, we brought 60 Muslim leaders to meet with 56 representatives about religious accommodations in schools, hate crimes, and immigrants’ rights. We successfully lobbied and helped pass three major pieces of legislation including: statewide religious accommodations for college students, comprehensive hate crimes legislation, and a sanctuary law that protects undocumented workers in our state.
THIS YEAR we’re bringing OVER 150 community leaders to the Capitol and we want YOU to be one of them! Space is limited and there is a (simple) application process; so don’t wait – apply now! bit.ly/mdac20
Stay tuned for updates on our legislative agenda and other exciting news about #MDAC20.
