“Voting is Power” in North Carolina

Filed under: American-Politics, From the Desk of Imam Mahdi Bray — Tags: , — Imam Mahdi Bray @ 3:42 am

Today, I gave the khutbah Islamic Center of Raleigh – one of fastest growing Muslim communities in the country. I gave a message of upliftment and progession and encouraged the community to move beyond traditional borders and integrate into greater community at large. The community specifically needs to concentrate heavily on development in three areas: Youth, Young Professionals and Women

I invite everyone in the area to join us tomorrow at 5:30PM in Cary, NC at the Cary Senior Center located at 120 Maury O’Dell Place for a “Voting is Power” Muslim Townhall Meeting with Muslim community leaders and public officials.

Speakers at the Muslim Civic Townhall Meeting will also include former U.S. Congressman Walter Fauntroy, Senator Larry Shaw (D-NC), U.S. Congressional Chief of Staff, Jamil Johnson, N.C. President of the League of Women Voters, Judy Burke, and Mukit Hossain of the Center for Electoral Empowerment, in addition to representatives from the Democratic and Republican state committees. 

I will post pictures of the event when I return to DC, Insha Allah
