Community Workshop: Reclaiming the People’s Voice in American Politics

The lack of answers to the very basic immigration questions that Americans have been asking have left us with many problems to fix on our own. Many in the Muslim community have been waiting for years to become American citizens due to drawn out background checks. The Latino community is dealing with regular USCIS raids and deportations in a band-aid solution to the 12.5 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States. Americans of all backgrounds are sacrificing their civil rights and liberties as collateral for perceived security.

Can we solve these problems by working with our Congressional representatives? Can we ask Congress to move forward and fix the problems we face as Americans?

How can the Muslim community take leadership and ownership of issues that are important not just to our community but to all Americans?

Come learn about different ways to help bring about change in our community! Come take part in a discussion about how we can demand that the system work for us as Americans!
