Virtual Muslim Day at Capitol (MDAC)
Muslim Day at the Capitol (MDAC) in California is the nation’s largest Muslim civic engagement event. In 2021, over 300 community members from across the state gathered virtually to play a critical role in shaping policies that impact all Californians. Participants are able to speak to Assembly members and state senators about issues impacting them and their community, attend townhalls, and engage in political education.
MDAC participants advocated on issues in an effort to promote just, equitable and progressive policies within the state, which include protecting the rights of refugees, reinstating voting rights for parolees, and lifting the ban on affirmative action, and expanding opportunity for all.
