*Tickets will not be sold at the door*
Join us at the Muslim Advocates Annual Gala 2013 as we explore opportunities and challenges to advance civil rights. The event features leading voices in the pursuit of freedom and justice for American Muslims and people of all faiths.
A highlight of the evening will be an onstage conversation with Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), House Democratic Leader and the first woman in American history to serve as Speaker of the House, and Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN), the first American Muslim elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. The conversation will be facilitated by Muslim Advocates Executive Director Farhana Khera.
Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
Democratic Leader, U.S. House of Representatives
Nancy Pelosi has led House Democrats for a decade and previously served as House Democratic Whip. Congresswoman Pelosi is focused on strengthening America's middle class and creating jobs, reforming the political system to create clean campaign and fair elections, enacting comprehensive immigration reform, and ensuring safety in America's communities, neighborhoods and schools.
Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN)
U.S. House of Representatives
Keith Ellison has represented the 5th District of Minnesota in Congress since taking office on January 4, 2007. The Fifth Congressional District is the most vibrant and ethnically diverse district in Minnesota with a rich history and traditions. His priorities in Congress are: promoting peace, prosperity for working families, and promoting civil and human rights.
The Gala will also honor leading voices in today's civil rights movement, including:
- Amardeep Singh, co-founder and Director of Programs at the Sikh Coalition
- Ravinder S. Bhalla of the Bhalla Law Firm
- The Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, Tennessee
Because of the deep commitment of our supporters, Muslim Advocates continues to grow and have an impact - educating the community about the law and their rights, testifying before Congress, pressing for change with senior White House officials, and bringing high impact lawsuits. Help us keep the momentum going by joining us on March 9th in support of our work.
