Artists Bring Immigration Experience to Life

September 11, 2013


Last month, MPAC kicked off its national immigration reform campaign with a spoken word night in Washington, DC. Titled "The Documented Word for Undocumented People," the event highlighted the stories of DREAMers, immigrants and supporters of immigration reform before a packed audience. 

The creative event, at DC's famed "Busboys & Poet," was sold out as young people came to show their support. The entertainment lineup included spoken word, stories and songs shedding light on the human aspect of immigration.

The event, spearheaded by MPAC's Summer 2013 interns in the DC office, was geared toward young people.

"This was an event by the youth for the youth," said Saif Inam, MPAC's Policy Analyst. "We hope the event galvanized those American Muslim youth to get involved in the immigration campaign."

MPAC will be releasing its immigration paper later next week, and it plans to hold town halls around the country to encourage American Muslims to be engaged in the national debate before the House of Representatives votes on the issue later this year.
