Beneficial Announcements for Nov 2016
Your Voice Counts, Vote on Tuesday (Nov 8, 2016)
70 Imams from 30 cities have got together to urge Muslims in the US to go out and vote. It was necessary because some people in our community have been circulating information promoting cynicism about voting and political engagement. In our society, standing up for what is right entails speaking out about issues, working with other citizens, voting, and making sure that politicians stick to their promises. Anyone refusing to participate in this process is essentially denying a most important path to establishing justice in our nation. We must strive for peace and justice at home and abroad. When we take part in the electoral process, we make our voices heard. Polls will be open from 7 AM to 8 PM on Election Day.
