Abudawas Sisters Advocate at State Capitol

Pacific Ridge sophomores Aliyah and Nadia Abudawas were selected by the San Diego Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to attend CAIR's Muslim Day at the state capitol on Monday, April 25th.
Aliyah and Nadia joined more than 600 American Muslims from throughout California to advocate for civil rights issues ranging from bias-based school bullying to law enforcement transparency. The sisters met with Senator Patricia Bates and Assemblyman Rocky Chavez to lobby for and against several current bills. Aliyah says the experience provided an eye-opening look into the political process.
