Salaam, and welcome to our December 2019 newsletter! Here's what we were up to this month:
American Muslim Health Professionals’ 15th Anniversary Gala
Poligon was honored to be joining AMHP for their milestone celebration. The Gala’s theme focused on strengthening the impact of Muslim health professionals to improve the health and wellness of all Americans. We were proud to collaborate with them on their advocacy toolkit.
The House voted to impeach President Trump, making him the third U.S. President to be impeached. The first article: abuse of power, was passed with 230-197 votes and the second article: obstruction of Congress, was passed with a vote of 229-198.

Congress is on Recess from Friday, December 20th until Sunday, January 5th. Poligon sent an action alert for winter recess when Members will be in their home districts.
