ADVISORY: "Muslim Americans' Inauguration Celebration: Engagement Priorities for the New Administration"
January 15, 2020
Previously, Emgage spearheaded the “Million Muslim Votes” campaign, which turned out an unprecedented number of Muslim American voters (well over one million) during the 2020 presidential election. Emgage Action hosted the “Million Muslim Votes” Summit, featuring President-Elect Joe Biden, in which he historically addressed Muslim Americans, and infamously vowed to end the Muslim Ban on the first day of his presidency, amongst other promises.
“The overwhelming majority of Muslim Americans voted for the Biden-Harris ticket. Now, we must ensure that our most important policy issues are addressed by the new administration in a collaborative and productive manner. We are excited to celebrate this moment and to get working on so many important issues together.” – Wa’el Alzayat, CEO of Emgage
WHAT: “Muslim Americans’ Inauguration Celebration: Looking Ahead to Engagement Priorities With the New Administration.”
