Chairman Crowley on the Holy Month of Ramadan

May 26, 2017

(Queens, NY) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement to celebrate the start of Ramadan.

“I want to extend my warm greetings to Muslim-American families in Queens and the Bronx, and across the country, as the holy month of Ramadan begins. Ramadan marks a period of reflection, spirituality, and rejoicing for those observing in the United States and around the world. As Muslim Americans join together to celebrate this month of reflection, we are reminded of our shared American values of tolerance, inclusion, and religious freedom. During this holy month, let’s embrace the spirit of Ramadan by celebrating the contributions of Muslim Americans, and rejecting violence and hateful rhetoric toward them in our country.”
