The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) is calling on the American Muslim community to join fellow Americans in celebrating Independence Day on July 4th.
The July 4th celebration is a symbol for the principles of freedom and liberty. It's a day to affirm our commitment to the values of democracy, human rights and respect for all regardless of religion and national origin. It's also a time to reach out to your fellow Americans to get to know them and to build bridges of understanding among all people.
On this day as American Muslims we need to resonate our dedication to uphold the Declaration of Independence. " We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness ".
We believe it is the hope and aspiration of humanity that the guarantees provided by the American constitution will be realized by all people struggling for freedom.
Every year, elected officials, law enforcement representatives, various faith and ethnic communities and local governments host, organize and sponsor the 4th of July parades, forums, picnics and regional events. MPAC is asking local Islamic centers and mosques as well as local Muslim leaders to represent the Muslim community by offering to speak on behalf of the American Muslim community.
If you need any assistance contacting your local elected officials or preparing any material pertinent to the 4th of July, call the Muslim Public Affairs Council at 323.258.6722 or e-mail [email protected].
The Muslim Public Affairs Council is a public service agency working for the civil rights of American Muslims, for the integration of Islam into American pluralism, and for a positive, constructive relationship between American Muslims and their representatives.
