This Election, Young Muslim Voters Aren’t Staying Silent

The Muslim American youth is engaged and is shaping America! Emgage reported a 25% increase of Muslim voters in the 2018 midterm, compared to 2014.

“The Muslim youth are the engine for this Muslim political movement.” -Mohamed Gula, Emgage Organizing Director

After experiencing years of rampant Islamophobia growing up in the aftermath of 9/11, young Muslim voters want to make sure their voices are heard.

Voters, in case you still need convincing, Emgage is providing you with the KEY differences between VP Joe Biden and President Trump on the Uyghurs, Palestine, India, and the Rohingya.

In case you missed it, Vice President Joe Biden dropped an “inshallah” last night at the first presidential debate.🙏🏾

The current administration will always be remembered for ignoring calls for racial justice and demonizing minorities. Joe Biden stands with Black Americans and ALL marginalized communities.

Please stay informed on the KEY differences between Biden and Trump. Here’s Biden VS Trump:

Trump's Taxes Show He's a National Security Threat

Mr. Trump, it’s not the protesters, or China, or migrants who are looting this country. It’s you.

The most powerful man on the planet paid only $750 in federal income tax. Trump IS the real national security threat. #TrumpTaxReturns

What trade-offs would a president with this level of indebtedness be willing to make to save face?

Trump Jump-Starts Misinformation on Ginsburg’s ‘Dying Wish’

Shame on Trump for denying and lying about the final wishes of Justice Ginsburg.

Here’s the truth: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” said Justice Ginsburg, dictating a note to her granddaughter.

Baseless claims about the legitimacy of the justice’s final statements were not circulating online in any significant way before the president said them on Fox News.

Its been 200 days since Breonna Taylor’s death.

It took 2 days for a grand jury to rule that the officers who killed her in her sleep were NOT responsible for killing her. To them, protecting a violent policing system is more important than black lives.

This is why we fight.

Actions of officer who killed Breonna Taylor ruled ‘justified;’ Another charged with wanton endangerment

INDICTMENTS IN BREONNA TAYLOR CASE:

-Brett Hankison: Wanton endangerment (3 counts)
-Jonathan Mattingly: Nothing
-Myles Cosgrove: Nothing

There cannot be peace without justice - justice for the MURDER of Breonna Taylor.

Louisville police fatally shot Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman, while they carried out a “no-knock” search warrant at her apartment in March. Taylor’s name has become a rallying cry — #SayHerName — for policing overhauls and racial justice nationwide.

Silence is being complicit.

Moments ago, the ‘Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act’ was finally passed. We cannot stay quiet as corporations make a profit off of forced labor - from ethnic/religious minorities in concentration camps in China.

We welcome the House passage of this legislation. As the genocide against the Uyghurs continues, it is incumbent for Congress to continue holding those accountable.

I’m a Muslim and Arab American. Will I Ever Be an Equal Citizen?

Trump has normalized this👇🏽

At the slightest sign of political disagreement, many Americans are eager to “revoke” citizenship. At the slightest sign of dissent, many Americans move to question loyalty - “Go back home!”

We’re better than this.

Nearly 30 years after arriving from Morocco, after building a life and family here, I still hear: “Go back home!”

Muslim Teen Disqualified From Volleyball Match Because Of Her Hijab

“It was because of her religion. It was because of her hijab.”

Najah is NOT the first Muslim student-athlete to be disqualified because of the hijab. It’s absolutely appalling that even in this day and age, our children are facing religious discrimination in schools - a place where children should feel completely safe and accepted.

“I was crying, not because I was hurt. I was crying because I was angry. I just thought it was unfair,” the student-athlete told HuffPost.

Trump to block downloads of TikTok, WeChat on Sunday

What we really need is a Trump ban, not a #tiktokban. Instead of focusing on TikTok, maybe Trump should stop ignoring those who are still being impacted by the pandemic.

It’s truly shameful that much bigger issues are being ignored just to gain political points.

The Commerce Department announced it will ban U.S. business transactions with China-owned social apps WeChat and TikTok on Sunday.

Editorial: Trump lied and Americans died

Think of every press conference, interview, and the countless times Trump made a mockery of people wearing masks.

“So now we have irrefutable proof that President Trump lied to the American people virtually from the start about the threat of the coronavirus.”

He simply DOES NOT CARE.

We knew that Trump failed miserably in responding to the coronavirus threat. Thanks to Bob Woodward, we now know he intentionally downplayed the risks.
