It is your right: Even more importantly, men and women over the years have sacrificed everything to ensure we continue to have that freedom.
Even today, there are countries around the world where people are fighting for the right to vote. Vote in honor of the oppressed.
Why let other people decide what is best for you, when you have a the right: Your Vote.
Your vote can influence the making of the laws and their implementation, so as to be more sensitive to the multi-cultural and multi-religious nature of the population of the United States.
It is your moral obligation to stand up for what matters most to you and have an impact on the issues that affect you, your community, and your future.
A vote is a powerful form of expression and power; American Muslim voters could help shape the discourse on race and religion.
Our government is supposed to represent us; if we don't express our wishes about who we want representing us and about the proposed laws and changes to laws, we will not be represented as intended.
The county commissioner, governor, state treasurer, legislators, President and Members of Congress will decide how to spend your money.
It’s your opportunity to be heard, to hold elected officials accountable for their decisions and to have a say in important issues that affect your community.
In a country where every voice can be heard, those who vote ensure that in at least this one way, their voices are heard. As American Muslims it is our moral obligation to stand up, speak out, and move to make changes that can and will repeal and challenge racist practice and policy that occurs both on an individual and on a government level. We don’t have to accept politicians striving for political gain by bashing our community and using us as scapegoats. We are a part of this nation and have been here since its founding. We need to speak out. We need to reclaim our history, reclaim our presence, be unapologetic, and work together to leverage our VOTES to prevent marginalization and victimization.
