Salaam, and welcome to our June 2020 newsletter! Here's what we were up to this month:
Congressional Advocacy 101 Training: A Critical Need For Healthcare
On June 3rd we held a Congressional Advocacy Training in partnership with American Muslim Health Professionals and Emgage Action. The training covered the basic functions of Congress and how to use advocacy to enact change in healthcare and policy issues that matter to our community.
Poligon and ISF Webinar: Working on the Hill
On June 11th we conducted a "Working on The Hill" webinar in partnership with the Islamic Scholarship Fund. Poligon President Wardah Khalid discussed networking, resume building, and the ins-and-outs of working on the Hill.
