Dear Colleague,

Please join us in cosponsoring a resolution that recognizes the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

April 23, 2020 marks the beginning of Ramadan. Ramadan is a time of heightened spiritual awareness, family bonding, communal service and worship, and self-renewal for Muslims everywhere. Muslim Americans and Muslims around the world take time during the
month of Ramadan to reflect upon their faith and to strive for deeper compassion and charity. This year’s resolution also brings attention to the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic will have on Muslims as they observe Ramadan.

The Muslim American community contributes to the vibrant growth of American society and culture. Muslim Americans play a significant role in our nation’s political process, economic growth, scientific innovation, entrepreneurship, health care, law enforcement,
public service, and homeland security. America’s pluralistic ideals and democratic institutions are expanded and strengthened by the everyday contributions of Muslim Americans.

If you have any questions or would like to become an original co-sponsor of this resolution, please contact Nawaid Ladak in Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson’s office at The deadline to sign on as an original cosponsor is
Thursday, April 23 at 2:00 pm.
