The Annual Michigan Muslim Capitol Day: Michigan Muslims for a Better Michigan will be held on Tuesday May 13th, 2013 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the State Capitol in Lansing and hosted by Michigan Muslim Community Council (MMCC).
The goal is to help maintain healthy relationships with elected officials. We would like them to know we are here to support them and to improve the lives of all Michiganders, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, so that we may help Michigan move forward.
This yearâ€™s event is expecting to bring hundreds of people from all across Michigan. The event will be taking place at the Capitol with tents set up for a casual environment which will include, food, speakers and activities for the over one hundred youth that are planning to attend. Simultaneously, there will be meetings between constituents and community members with their state representatives and senators.
We have gathered a phenomenal bi-partisan group of 39 elected officials as co-hosts for this yearâ€™s event. Governor Rick Snyder and the Attorney General Bill Schuette, have issued welcome letters to MMCC. We are also excited to announce that Emmy-Award winning Senior Producer, Carol Cain will be our emcee.
