January 31, 2023 - Texas Muslim Capitol Day


Texas Muslim Capitol Day (TMCD) is an event that brings together hundreds of Texas Muslims to the state's Capitol in Austin, Texas. During the event, Texas Muslims hold meetings with elected officials, a rally in front of the Capitol, and a prayer service. This event is done in collaboration with dozens of other Texas Muslim organizations, schools, Islamic centers, and other groups to empower Texas Muslims to become more civically engaged and have their voices heard.
 
20th Year Anniversary: This TMCD is special as it's the 20th year that Muslims have been regularly visiting the Texas State Capitol and building bridges. We are proud of our community who strive to continue this legacy. This year we hope to make it the largest TMCD to commemorate the 20 year anniversary.
