"Thomas Jefferson was Secretary of State is when he received his first copy of the Koran, on his travels abroad. So we’ve had a presence of Muslims in America, an interwoven part of the American tapestry, since the 1700s."
-Senator Dwight Bullard
Senator Bullard has been a long-time advocate for education, public safety and minorities. He has also supported EmergeUSA and our work by lending his voice. In 2016, he led a press conference with EmergeUSA for Florida Muslim Capitol Day where he denounced discriminatory legislation and stood side by side with Muslim constituents in solidarity. Join us on October 28 in honoring Senator Bullard as Legislator of the Year.
