Why is faith-based organization in Muslim communities important?

#MuslimVotes #PowerHour was another night of networking and fun. This time, the panel portion featured local voices from Muslim faith-based organizing and voting rights advocacy, as well as distinguished guests from Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim-majority democracy. Dinner was a gourmet taco bar.
