Hossam Gamea of ILC-NY Lobbies with USCMO on 5th Annual National Muslim Advocacy Day

Originally published by AMNewswire on September 27, 2020.
The Annual National Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill is an initiative that brings together hundreds of Muslim delegates that come from a variety of non-profit, advocacy, and other organizations to lobby for issues pertaining to the Muslim community. These issues include that of civil rights, education, immigration reform, challenging the Muslim ban, and foreign policy. 
Hossam Gamea from the Islamic Leadership Council of New York worked with a delegation of other Muslim professionals who gathered in D.C. to lobby. Delegates spoke with Representatives and Staffers like Grace Meng, Chuck Schumer, and Rashida Tlaib. Hossam represented the Islamic Leadership Council of New York, an umbrella organization to 90+ mosques and organizations in New York. 
These efforts are seen as initiatives to bring the voices and needs of the constituents straight to their representatives. Community leaders here are sent to speak on behalf of their community. Hossam Gamea is a reputable advocate, and has written for Traversing TraditionThe TabMedium, and has been hosted on numerous podcasts for his insight on the Muslim American experience.
