Urge Your House Rep to Sign Ramadan Resolution

September 23, 2005



ACTION REQUESTED:

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 9/23/05) The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today urged American Muslims and other people of conscience to call their elected representatives and ask that they sign on to a House resolution recognizing the upcoming Islamic fast of Ramadan. (Calls are best because of time constraints.)

The resolution states in part:

(1) during this time of conflict, in order to demonstrate solidarity with and support for members of the community of Islam in the United States and throughout the world, the House of Representatives recognizes the Islamic faith as one of the great religions of the world; and (2) in observance of and out of respect for the commencement of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting and spiritual renewal, the House of Representatives acknowledges the onset of Ramadan and expresses its deepest respect to Muslims in the United States and throughout the world on this significant occasion.

ACTON REQUESTED:

1. To read the entire resolution, and to contact your elected representative, go to: http://capwiz.com/cair/callalert/index.tt?alertid=8054916&type=CO

2. CAIR is also asking mosques and Islamic centers nationwide to host a “Sharing Ramadan” Iftar, or fast-breaking meal, designed to enhance understanding of Islam and to help Americans of all faiths meet their Muslims neighbors. A “Sharing Ramadan Resource Guide” providing step-by-step instructions for hosting such an event is available online at: www.cair.com/sharingramadan05.pdf

CONTACT: CAIR Government Affairs Director Corey Saylor, 202-488-8787 or 571-278-4658, E-Mail: csaylor@cair-net.org
