On October 11, 2016, MCN testified at a hearing held by NYC Council Members in support of Resolution 1230-2016. The Resolution was passed, declaring support for Muslim communities, affirming the religious pluralism of the United States and urges all residents to stand together for peace and understanding. This was a timely and important action taken by the NYC Council in light of the increase of anti-Muslim hate crimes and discrimination.
