Thank You For Doing Your Part
The Afghan-American Call-in Day Was a Success Because of You!
Congratulations, we have a lot to be proud of!
Yesterday, over 500 Afghan Americans came together in a first of its kind event to engage in the democratic process. Together we spoke with one voice to ask our representatives in Washington to support our family and friends in Afghanistan.
The DPPC is so thankful for the enthusiasm and participation of thousands who visited our website and Facebook page yesterday from the Afghan American community across the country in states such as California, New York, Virginia, Maryland, Connecticut, Nevada, Indiana, and Texas, as well as strong encouragement from many back in Afghanistan including the reformers in Parliament. We are also grateful for the help of several Afghan American organizations, community groups, and community organizers who mobilized their networks to support the call-in day.
While today is a day to celebrate, our fight is just beginning. Effecting change in a democratic system takes time, patience, and repetition. It requires us to be organized as a community so we can mobilize the hundreds of thousands of our fellow Afghan-Americans and the many organizations and groups that work in our community. By working together, we have a better chance of achieving our goals.
I call on you to stay engaged with the DPPC and our mission. Sign up for alerts on our website. Follow us on Facebook and share the stories we post. Participate in upcoming events and call-in days. If you work for an Afghan American community organization or group, please get in contact with us. Our agenda is not about one person, or one organization, or one policy, we are here to help the entire community and to help the youth of Afghanistan achieve better, safer lives than the generations that came before them.
Once again, thank you for the immense love and support.
Martin Amin Rahmani
