This video is about the coming U.S. Midterm Elections. Senator Ghazala Hashmi from Virginia (Dist. 10), Salam al-Marayati, President of Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), and Junaid Ahmed, Congressional Democratic candidate for Illinois' 8th district discuss the issues that matter most to voters.
They discuss how (1) inflation, (2) pandemic, (3) war in Europe, (4) culture wars, (5) Jan 06 hearings, (6) gun control laws, (7) Women's constitutional rights & LGBTQ issues and (8) Biden's approval ratings will influence voter turnout and the outcome of midterm elections.
All three participants are part of an emerging American Muslim political elite. Their views and political activism both represent American Muslims but also guide the community and shape its views as they act as bridges between the community and mainstream politics. Their leadership is focused on making American issues Muslim issues and Muslim concerns American issues.
