Muslim Democratic Club of New York Endorses Bill de Blasio as Mayor
(New York, NY, 9/13/13) – The executive board of the Muslim Democratic Club of New York (MDCNY) last night voted to endorse Bill de Blasio as mayor of New York.
“Bill de Blasio has proven to be a true champion of progressive values and civil rights from his support of the NYPD Inspector General to his recent call to review the police department’s Muslim surveillance program,” said Linda Sarsour, President of the Muslim Democratic Club of New York. “We are fully committed to push the Muslim vote out for Bill this November and look forward to working with him during his tenure to advance all communities in our city, including American Muslims.”
Sarsour also noted that de Blasio supports the incorporation of the two Muslim holidays in the public school system.
MDCNY is comprised of members from all five boroughs, many of whom are active in their communities. Club activities include enhancing communication between American Muslim communities and their representatives and mobilizing residents to vote.
