Organizations Partner to Host Letter Writing Campaign
at Masjid An Nasr in Oklahoma City

The Oklahoma Progressive Network (OPN) and the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City (ISGOC) will host a letter writing campaign Saturday, March 4 from 10 a.m. to noon at Masjid An Nasr in Oklahoma City. Organizers say the event’s purpose is to provide the community an opportunity to share their thoughts and concerns with Oklahoma legislators regarding the importance of diversity and unity across the state.

“We are so happy to join with OPN in this very important and critical matter of unity for all faiths, races and cultures here in Oklahoma and worldwide,” said Saad Mohammed, director of Islamic information for ISGOC.

Everyone is welcome at the event, and paper, pens, and crayons for children will be provided. OPN will also provide postage, all materials and supplies, and mail the letters. Refreshments will be served.

“In the wake of the current administration’s recent Muslim ban, OPN felt it was important to reach out to our fellow Oklahomans in the Muslim community,” said Kasey Greenhaw, OPN’s vice president/president-elect. “We believe there is strength in diversity and in acceptance, and we are excited to partner with the Islamic Society of Greater OKC in a diversity letter writing campaign. We encourage those who share our values to join us as we write letters to our local legislators, making clear how important equality is to the people of Oklahoma.”

Masjid An Nasr is located at 2815 N. Clair Ave. in Oklahoma City. For more information, go to okprognet.org or this event’s Facebook page.
