We here at MG have some exciting news to share! Our Muslim Girl initiative, the first inaugural #MuslimWomensDay, has been declared an official day for the city of Orlando, and for the entire state of Florida.
First enacted by Orlando’s mayor, Mayor Buddy Dyer, with a citywide proclamation, Senator Linda Stewart was able to make a statewide proclamation as well. This was followed by a House Tribute from Representative Carlos Guillermo Smith.
Representative Carlos Guillermo Smith of Florida echoed those sentiments as he issued the House Tribute for #MuslimWomensDay.
The first inaugural #MuslimWomensDay received support from government officials in other states as well — Indiana governor Eric Holcomb gave the initiative a video shoutout, while New York’s comptroller, Scott Stringer, tweeted about #MuslimWomensDay.
How will you be celebrating #MuslimWomensDay?
