This is the third year the Pleasanton City Council has had this Proclamation. These are the Tri-Valley City Council commemorations in 2021: https://youtu.be/u5xITaHl37A

This Proclamation acknowledges the rich history and guiding virtues of American Muslims, and commends Muslim communities in California for the lasting positive impact they have made, and continue to make, toward the advancement of the state and the nation.

The Pleasanton City Council follows in the steps of other City Councils in the San Francisco Bay Area, like Santa Clara, Pleasanton, Hayward, San Ramon, Livermore, Dublin, Union City, Oakland, San Jose, and Redwood City. The Proclamation is likely the first agenda item so please be on time at 7 p.m. for the virtual meeting.

These city Proclamations commemorate the California Assembly designation of August as American Muslim Appreciation and Awareness Month. For the past seven years, Assemblymember Bill Quirk has introduced this resolution to commemorate American Muslim Appreciation and Awareness month. The ceremonies take place during the first few minutes of the city’s council meeting.
