This new club received a unanimous vote of acceptance at Wednesday’s Los Angeles County Democratic Club meeting.
Ali’s political career began in 1988 as an aide to Rev. Jesse Jackson campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. And with over three decades of political and social activism, he’s worked with or for political leaders that include former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, Senator Kamala Harris and Congressmember Karen Bass’ Current chair of the Congressional Black Caucus.
Ali currently serves as the first Muslim chaplain in the history of the Mayor’s office in Los Angeles, is the founder of the city of Los Angeles Muslim Heritage Month and was the leading activist who helped write the first draft and spearheaded the successful California state law AB 1422. The Sherrice Iverson Act which was signed in 2001 by Governor Gray Davis.
This law was named in memory of the seven-year-old child who was kidnapped raped and murdered in a Las Vegas casino on May 25, 1997 and helps protect children from pedophiles. It’s the first law named in the nation after a slain black child.
Ali states the “Muslim Democratic Club of Southern California” is open to all Democrats.
