It’s 2018 election year. Let’s make it a larger and louder Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill
Starting January 10, 2018, the US Council of Muslim Organizations’ (USCMO) has opened registration for the fourth annual National Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., May 7th and 8th, 2018.
All representatives for national, state and local Muslim organizations and communities are able to register for this two-day advocacy event. Muslim delegates and activists will discuss the most pressing issues affecting Muslim Americans in today’s climate with congressional offices. Registration is now open until May 1st, 2018.
For those who would like additional advocacy techniques and a more in-depth rundown on the advocacy day’s focused issues, there will be a series of online training seminars for those registered before the day itself.
Last year’s event was attended by more than 450 delegates from 30 states who met with nearly 230 congressional offices. Muslim delegates participating in last year’s advocacy day event met with a third of the House of Representatives and almost half of the Senate.
Following a highly effective day in 2017, the goal now is to make this year’s bigger, better, and louder. Change starts with a voice, and this day will be the platform.
