On Monday, December 18, Emgage MI led a coalition dinner that brought together the Muslim American community, and the Chaldean and Assyrian American communities. With a history of conflict in Iraq, the historical relationships between the communities have not been any better here at home. However, with recent ICE raids affecting both communities, common ground has been found. Upcoming GOTV plans for 2018, candidate forums, as well as policy and legislative advocacy were topics discussed at the dinner. As we continue to build political power, especially in counties such as Macomb County, unified political engagement will allow for our communities to politically flourish. Emgage Michigan looks forward to continued relationship building with all communities.
