ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, July 22, 2023/ — Georgia proudly stands at the forefront of diversity and inclusion in the United States, as it marks July as Muslim American Heritage Month with vibrant celebrations in five major counties, including Gwinnett, Cobb, DeKalb, Hall, and Fulton. These five counties alone represent thirty five percent of Georgia population.

“Muslim American Heritage Month” recognizes and celebrates the contributions made by Muslims to the fabric of society in the United States, Georgia, & around the Globe.

“Being a large diverse society and as Americans, we are often not aware of each other’s accomplishments, contributions, cultures, values, and religious faith. The observance of Muslim American Heritage Month is a way for Muslims and children in specific to have a sense of pride and belonging,” Said Rahim Shah Akhunkhail, Founder of Voices of Muslims.
