LAHC Welcomes the Launch of Eid Stamp By the United States Postal Service

Press release: LAHC

LAHC takes pride in celebrating diversity and inclusion within our various programs and the community.  As an organization committed to inspiring youth, assisting the under-resourced, and establishing opportunities for members of society to learn and grow, together, in a diverse space, we welcome the United States Postal Service’s support of the American Muslim community with the launch of the Eid stamp.

The launch event, held at the Islamic Center of America, brought the USPS and local leaders such as United States Attorney Barbara McQuade, 19th District Court Chief Judge and LAHC President the Honorable Sam Salamey among other leaders and community members to celebrate the forever stamp that commemorates the two religious holidays in Islam, Eid Al-Fitr, which culminates the holy month of Ramadan, and Eid Al-Adha, which is the feast of sacrifice and is during the time of pilgrimage (Hajj).  The script on the stamps reads “Eidukum Mubarak,” which means “may your Eid be bountiful (or blessed).”

“We welcome our nation’s efforts to recognize the two major holidays in Islam by releasing the Forever Eid stamp,” says Ali Jawad, LAHC Founder.  “We are a community that is rich in diversity and the LAHC proudly joins together with area organizations and agencies to educate, empower, and support all communities, regardless of their background.  We respect and are committed to serving all at the LAHC and USPS has shown that we are stronger when we support our diverse communities.”
