L.A. City Council Adopts Muslim American Heritage Month
by Monica Luhar
Every year, Los Angeles celebrates a number of heritage months: Latino, American Indian, African American, Asian and Pacific Islander American, and LGBT. Now you can add one more to that list this year.
The Los Angeles City Council adopted a resolution on Wednesday recognizing the contributions and activism of the Muslim American community and declared July 2014 as Muslim American Heritage Month.
Council member Curren D. Price, who introduced the resolution, represents one of the largest and longest-standing Muslim community centers in South LA -- the Bilal Islamic Center.
