We are proud to announce that during the Democratic National Convention, the ‘Muslim Delegates Assembly‘ will be featuring prominent elected officials and politicians, with Emgage Action CEO Wa’el Alzayat moderating a discussion on voter mobilization via the Million Muslim Votes campaign (1:15 – 1:45 PM EST).The Muslim Delegates Assembly will also feature Sen. Bernie Sanders, Rep. Andre Carson, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Rep. Ilhan Omar, State Attorney General Keith Ellison, Tom Perez, and many more!

The program will explore the importance of the Muslim vote during the upcoming elections, the impact of COVID-19 on Muslim Americans as presented by a panel of experts (National Muslim COVID-19 Task Force), and much more.
With increasing efforts by Muslim Americans to politically mobilize during the 2020 presidential elections, we are pleased to reflect this through our presence at the 2020 Democratic Convention. Muslim Americans, when politically literate and civically engaged, have the potential for immense impact on American politics. If harnessed properly, we can be a tremendously compelling force within our American democracy. Harnessing this force, and subsequently, executing it in ways that maximize impact, is precisely what we hope to do…
– Wa’el Alzayat, CEO of Emgage Action
