  • Anti-Racism is a Part of Islam.

    July 4, 2020
    This Independence Day, as Muslims in America, our faith commits us to seriously reckon with the social factors which make racism a reality. Our unique historical moment demands that we move beyond them through a collective political struggle. We must strive for anti-racism, as both an ideal as well as a concrete practice and politics.

  • Toward Pluralism: DA Rosen Must Retract His Whistleblower Complaint

    June 24, 2020
    Last week, Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeffrey Rosen made it clear to his staff that he was prepared to file a whistleblower complaint against Sajid Khan, a deputy alternate public defender in Santa Clara. District Attorney Rosen erroneously claimed that Khan was hoping to “incite anger and destruction toward us” and had effectively “endangered the safety of everyone” at the office. It is clear from Khan’s writings that he speaks from the vantage point of a concerned citizen — not from a place of malice. The Muslim Public Affairs Council is committed to ensuring a pluralistic society. We call on District Attorney Rosen to issue a public apology to Mr. Khan and retract any formal complaints he may have initiated.

  • Police Reform is a Small Step, But We Need a Big Leap

    June 17, 2020
    In the time since the Minneapolis protests, the popular support has coalesced behind calls for substantial changes to policing and community safety. For these groups, police abolition means securing communities through community-led efforts, reinvestments in public health and education, and more just housing programs. There are also the proposals from city governments and councils dealing with public pressure, which will likely only result in a reconstruction of existing police forces. On Monday, Democrats in the House and Senate introduced their vision of what such reforms would look like: the Justice in Policing Act, a measure which is a compromise with the abolitionist proposals coming from social justice groups. The GOP has yet to submit a police reform proposal, though they have tasked the lone black Republican in the Senate, Sen. Tim Scott, with leading their efforts to do so. Election Day is fast approaching, and along with the coming of November 3rd will come a judgment on which public representatives were able to listen and heed the calls from the American majority.
