Seven Muslim Americans on Ballot in Suburban Chicago



VOAVide: Seven Muslim Americans on Ballot in Suburban Chicago
When it started last year, the non-profit group Project Mobilize, or Project M, hoped to change the political landscape in suburban Chicago by promoting Muslim Americans as election candidates. So far, there are no Muslim Americans serving as elected officials in the Chicago area. But as VOA's Kane Farabaugh reports, Project M hopes that will change in municipal elections April 5.

I'm glad you posted this. Every group needs to get their voices heard through the political process. I'm happy to see the spread of democracy in the Middle East. I wish them continued success toward the goal of free and fair elections. It's not easy to run for political office. I admire anyone who takes on the challenge.
