The 15th Muslim Day at the Capitol (MDAC) is on Tuesday, February 26th, 2019. You can help convey the concerns and needs of the Muslim community to our legislators.

All other attendees are invited to the welcome session at the State Capitol Rotunda at 8:30 am.

Attendees go in small groups to meet with legislators and speak to them about Muslim concerns. We are making appointments on behalf of attendees as of now. Please check with your group leaders on your district appointments.
Join your Muslim neighbors – doctors, engineers, business people, senior citizens, high school students, college students, stay at home parents and many many others – to show the strength and diversity of the Muslim community in Minnesota. Participants in the MDAC will have an opportunity to meet State Legislators to discuss issues relating to education, immigration, healthcare, and civil rights and help bring about positive social change. It is very important for the Muslim community to interact with our legislators and be positive participating citizens in the larger community.
