Meet Abdullah Hammoud: Michigan’s First Muslim Elected Official in His District
February 8, 2018
Young elected officials across the country are not only creating change in their communities, but they are also transforming the narratives surrounding our nation’s politics these days. One elected official in particular is leading and driving change in Michigan.
Meet Abdullah Hammoud, Michigan’s first and only Muslim Arab American State Representative in the State’s 15th House District who was elected at age 26. The proud son of Lebanese immigrant parents, Abdullah was born and raised in Dearborn, Michigan, home to some of the largest Arab American populations in the United States.
While facing many challenges during his campaign, Abdullah never shied away from his commitment to advance and serve his community. Abdullah’s personal story and his career accomplishments are both inspiring and motivational to all Americans, especially our youth.
