Engaging for Human Rights with Senator Nelson’s Office

Emgage Florida met with Senator Nelson’s Florida Regional Director, Helen Miller and shared our concerns for the human rights violations against both the Rohingya Muslims and Palestinian children. Human rights is not a political issue and the U.S. must maintain its position as a global leader in upholding justice and dignity for all.  As Americans and as Muslims, we have always been champions of human rights for the world’s most vulnerable groups. No matter what the political situation may be, we have a duty to protect the humanity and innocence of the world’s children especially. By discussing these critical legislative agendas with our representatives we make our voices heard to effect real change in policy. As our constituent who joined the meeting, Ahmad El-Gendi stated, “we cannot be complicit in the crime, we cannot be silent.”
