The Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago is organizing a statewide ACTION! day for the Illinois' Muslim community. On Wednesday, March 9, 2011 Muslims from all over Illinois will drive down to the state capitol to meet with legislators and advocate for a variety of important issues. Last year about 1000 Muslims from Illinois, young and old, took it on themselves under the CIOGC banner to be active citizens and advocate for common good. This year we would like you to be part of this great annual civic event of the Muslim community in Illinois.
