Emgage PAC Candidates On the Verge of Making History

In this past election cycle, Emgage PAC, a national Political Action Committee for Muslim Americans, has worked tirelessly to support candidates who stand-up for all Americans regardless of race, religion, or gender. Today, Michigan has the opportunity to elect an unprecedented slate of diverse, competent, and exciting candidates who truly represent the will of the people.

Abdul El-Sayed can become America’s first Muslim governor, Rashida Tlaib and Fayrouz Saad can be our first Muslim Congresswomen, and Abraham Aiyash can join Abdullah Hammoud as the second Muslim (and first State Senator) in the state legislature. These candidates and the rest of Emgage PAC endorsed candidates have run substantive and enthusiastic campaigns that showed the people of Michigan that change is possible. Our candidates represent the best of Michigan and our nation, and we are proud to support them in these historic elections.

“Let us do everything we can in the next few days to create a historical victory in Michigan and America,” Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said on August 5th at a rally for gubernatorial candidate Dr. Abdul El-Sayed.

Wa’el Alzayat, a former U.S. Diplomat and current CEO of Emgage Action said, “Across the country, Muslim-Americans and minority communities are dealing with hate crimes, xenophobia, and scapegoating by politicians. Emgage PAC is ensuring that these communities exercise their right to vote by holding phone banks, canvassing, and rallying for a new kind of candidates. Voting is how we will respond to the hate and divisiveness.
