Since 2009, CIOGC has provided the greater Chicago Muslim community the opportunity to engage with Illinois legislators in a meaningful way through Illinois Muslim Action Day (IMAD).
This year, Illinois Muslim Action Day (IMAD) will be held on Thursday, April 27, 2017. Please save the date!

Last year, among other accomplishments, the Take on Hate Resolution was successfully passed by the State Senate and a resolution to recognize Illinois Muslim Action Day was also passed. In addition, several youth civic leaders actively participated as Senate Pages and learned about the legislative process by shadowing State Senators.
With new political challenges facing the Muslim community, IMAD serves as an excellent way to address these issues through civic action. If you are a CIOGC member organization and would like to participate in IMAD 2017, please contact Farah at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 312-506-0070.
