SEATTLE – Hundreds of Washington State Muslims are planning to march together to the Capitol Building, meet state lawmakers in their offices and urge their legislators to speak out against Islamophobic rhetoric and hate crimes.
“This event will provide an opportunity for Muslims from the majority of our state’s legislative districts to learn more about the political process and to meet their elected representatives,” said CAIR-WA Executive Director Arsalan Bukhari.
“Legislators should take action during this crucial year to allocate funds to preserve critical services for the most vulnerable in our society.”
At the march, planned as part of the annual event, “Washington State Muslims Day at the Capitol,” some 400 Washington state Muslims are scheduled to meet with dozens of their elected representatives.
Organized by the Washington state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the event, to be held January 16, is one of the largest of its kind in the nation.
It is designed to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his defense of civil rights through positive civic engagement.
Muslim voters attending the event will represent 33 of the 49 state legislative districts.
Participants will urge legislators to take action on other issues, including preserving critical public programs and having a balanced approach to the state budget.
They will present legislators and their staff with a copy of the English translation of the Quran, Islam’s holy text.
If you live in Washington, Contact Your Elected Officials en masse and tell them not to pander to Islamists like terror-linked CAIR and consider forming a counter procession next Monday.
