Senator Doug Jones Visits an Alabama Mosque
Last weekend, CAIR-Alabama hosted Senator Doug Jones for a community visit and Iftar at Hoover Crescent Islamic Center. Muslims came from all over Alabama to listen to the Senator address issues like his recent vote to confirm a controversial candidate and to ask him about ways to combat Islamophobia. It was the first time an Alabama senator visited a mosque and it presented a historic opportunity for the Muslim community to engage with their elected official.
