A Seat at the Table for American Muslims

On the morning of January 3rd, Hoda Hawa, the Director of our D.C. office, and Adam Beddawi, our Policy Analyst, attended Speaker Pelosi’s event in honor of opening day for Congress. The swearing-in ceremonies for members were historic; the 116th Congress is the most diverse one in American history and includes two American Muslim women: Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib!
