WASHINGTON, DC --- Emerge USA and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) have partnered to produce a series of short videos which serve to engage American Muslims in this year's election. The first video was released today and features Khurrum Wahid, co-chair of Emerge USA and Hazem Bata, executive director of ISNA, answering frequently asked questions among voters and discussing the power American Muslims hold as significant stakeholders and constituents.
