  • USCMO CONDEMNS THE ORLANDO SHOOTING

    USCMO CONDEMNS THE ORLANDO SHOOTING

    (Washington, D.C., 6/12/2016) – The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), the largest coalition of leading national and local Muslim organizations, expresses its horror over the mass shooting which took place at a nightclub in Orlando, FL overnight, and offers its deepest and heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and prays for quick recovery for those who were injured.

    The shooting, where over 50 were killed and at least the same number were injured, is an affront to all minorities. The USCMO stands firmly against all forms of violence committed against any group, regardless of religious affiliation, creed, color, or sexual orientation. “We condemn such heinous acts by individuals or groups who have no regard for the sanctity of human life” said Oussama Jammal, the secretary general of USCMO.

    The right to live free from violence, harassment or intimidation is the most basic human right and must be defended unconditionally.

    The USCMO urges the Muslim community in Orlando, Florida to step up to donate blood and to reach out to the injured and to the families of the victims

  • Second Annual Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill

    Second United National Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill

    On April 18, 2016, ICO’s Chair Sheryl Siddiqui and CAIR-OK’s staff attorney
    Veronica Laizure, participated in the U.S. Council of Muslim Organization’s
    (USCMO’s) Second Annual Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill. After a short review
    of lobbying strategy, they visited with Legislative staff in Senator
    Lankford’s office, Congressman Steve Russell’s office and Congressman
    Bridenstine’s office.
    The issues raised with the legislators’ offices were:
    1. Islamophobia, one of ICO’s 2016 Goals and also a 2016 goal for USCMO:
    Siddiqui and Laizure brought stories and statistics and recommended actions
    that legislators can take to help us respond to it and control its spread in
    the future.
    2. Recommendations on how to help people without a credit history establish
    a credit score without having to take out loans, especially important to
    Muslims who want to live riba- free and people just starting out.
    3. Recommendations to promote federal grants to companies willing to open
    grocery stores in “food deserts” promoting healthy families and more livable
    neighborhoods.
    4. Our concerns regarding the oversight, management and approach of federal
    Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) programs.
    This year showed that American Muslims are even more concerned and involved
    that last year. Our Oklahoma ICO & CAIR reps joined more than 330 activists
    from 28 states who made 225 meetings with congressional offices. Will you
    join us next year?

  • Reflection on Tragedy in California

    (Tulsa, OK 12/3/15) The Islamic Council of Oklahoma’s spokesperson, Sheryl Siddiqui, reflects on yesterday’s tragedy in California:

    “Social Services” is where people with limited resources go for help. It is the place where workers start their selfless careers “just wanting to help people”. Yesterday, instead of being the place that improves lives, San Bernardino County Social Services was the venue where many precious lives were needlessly and criminally taken. It became a place of heartbreaking news for everyone. Our prayers go to the employees, their families and friends. We hope that in the aftermath of this tragedy that they will get the help they need and deserve. Our thanks go to the officers of the law who successfully worked together, risking their own lives to contain the situation and protect the public.
