MDCNY Endorses Bernie Sanders in Democratic Presidential Primary

(New York, NY) – On February 16, 2016, the Muslim Democratic Club of New York (MDCNY) voted to endorse United States Senator Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Presidential Primary. Sanders received unanimous support in a vote held at the club’s membership meeting on Tuesday evening.

“MDCNY is proud to make its first ever endorsement in a national race by supporting Bernie Sanders. His honesty, integrity, and progressive agenda are in line with the principles of our club,” said MDCNY President Murad Awawdeh. “For too long, anti-Muslim rhetoric in this election has attempted to push our communities to the margins. Our voice and vote will be felt as we activate our members throughout New York to mobilize our communities to vote for Sanders in the April primary. We also plan to volunteer remotely to provide support in the earlier primary states.”

MDCNY Secretary Mohammad Khan remarked “the Sanders campaign offers a refreshing break from the establishment politics that favor the wealthy and well-connected. For communities like ours, which have long been marginalized, we need someone with a transformative vision for change.”

After a virtual tie in Iowa and a decisive win in New Hampshire, the Sanders campaign is picking up increasing momentum going into the remaining primary elections.

The Muslim Democratic Club of New York is a city-wide organization dedicated to increasing the civic empowerment of Muslim New Yorkers and advancing progressive policies in the Democratic Party.

    Glad to have you on our team. I’m a delegate candidate and a member of CBID. We’ll be having a watch party in Park Slope tomorrow. Team Bernie NY may also be hosting a watch party in Brooklyn Heights (we usually do one at 132 Lounge on Montague St).
