April 25, 2016
(ATLANTA, GA, 4/25/16) – The Georgia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-GA) today welcomed a decision by Rep. David Scott (D-GA) to co-sponsor an anti-Islamophobia congressional resolution (H.Res.569) following a meeting between his staff and representatives of that state’s Muslim community during National Muslim Advocacy Day on April 18th.
The second annual event, which was organized by the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), brought more than 300 American Muslims from around the nation to Capitol Hill to meet with their lawmakers.
“We thank Congressman Scott for joining the effort to condemn anti-Muslim hate speech, which undermines our nation’s commitment to tolerance, diversity and pluralism,” said CAIR-GA Executive Director Edward Ahmed Mitchell, who took part in the meeting with Rep. Scott’s staff.
