Urge Congress to support resolution recognizing the history of American Muslims and their contributions

  •  Join the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) in urging members of the U.S. House of Representatives to co-sponsor H. Res. 869 – “Recognizing American Muslims’ history and contributions to our Nation,” introduced by Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA) and co-sponsored by Representatives Eleanor Holmes Norton (DC), Sheila Jackson Lee (TX), Luis Correa (CA), Keith Ellison (MN), and Betty McCollum (MN).
  • Help acknowledge and appreciate the positive impact of American Muslims on our country. This resolution highlights the over 5,000 American Muslims currently serving in the Armed Forces, as well as distinguished American Muslims who are U.S. military veterans, including Humayun Khan. Khan was killed in a suicide attack in Iraq in 2004 and posthumously awarded a Purple Heart and Bronze Star.
  • The resolution identifies many influential religious leaders and civil rights activists like Malcom X and Imam Warith Deen Mohammed, as well as elected officials like Congressman Keith Ellison (MN-5) and Congressman Andre Carson (IN-7).
  • CONTACT: CAIR Government Affairs Director Robert McCaw, 202-742-6448, rmccaw@cair.com; CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper, 202-744-7726, ihooper@cair.com
