Salaam, and welcome to our November 2020 newsletter! Here’s what we were up to this month:
Tomorrow is GivingTuesday, a great opportunity to support nonprofits across the country. With your support, we can progress our mission to amplify American Muslim voices in Congress in 2021 through new initiatives, training our communities on how to advocate for issues that matter to them, and continuing to educate them through informative policy resources.
To continue these efforts, we need your help! Can you donate $20, $50, or $100 today to help to ensure every American Muslim voice is heard in Congress in 2021?

Recent news reports revealed that the Muslim Pro App had compromised the data of over 98 million users. While consumer-facing platforms are often legally restricted from sharing such information, certain legal loopholes allow for data brokers and third-party firms without a direct relationship to consumers to share private data with government institutions.
Poligon Education Fund is calling on our Representatives in Congress to investigate such loopholes and protect the Fourth Amendment right of the people to be “secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.”
