MAPS Sign Vandalized A Second Time
Assalamu Alaykum / Peace be upon you

We are dismayed to report that the new MAPS sign launched at our sign restoration ceremony last week was vandalized early this morning. The Redmond Police is investigating and has increased presence and patrol around the mosque. Early evidence indicates that this act of hate is the act of a single individual. 

All programs and events will continue as planned at MAPS:  Gingerbread House Building "Together We Stand" today at 1:30pm, Free/Subsidized Health Clinic for the community  tomorrow at 10am, and Coding in Scratch for Kids and Adults  tomorrow at 5pm.

We also ask the community to join us at the press conference and rally to declare Washington a "Hate-Free State" called by Congresswoman-Elect Pramila Jayapal on  Monday, December 19 at 9:30am at the Seattle Center Pavilion (305 Harrison Street, Seattle).  We remain firm in our commitment and resolve that despite the ugly acts of individuals, we are stronger together and love is greater than hate.  

Thank you,
Mahmood Khadeer
MAPS President
