Passing Of A Good Friend To the Arab and Muslim American Communities and humanity combined, Marwan Burgan

Dear Friends,

It is with great sadness that I am passing on this note to notify you that a dear friend to the Arab and Muslim American Communities and humanity combined , Marwan Burgan, has departed this world last night after a long struggle with pancreatic cancer.

For over 30 years Marwan had worked and lobbied on behalf of the Arab and Muslim communities. Some of his many accomplishments were working on the passage of Res. 56 in 1991 in order to protect the rights of Arab Americans, as well as amending hate crimes laws to specifically include Muslims and Mosques.
