*Amid Black History Month, a petition campaign has been launched by a coalition of Michael Jackson supporters, calling for Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass to declare a Michael Jackson Day in Los Angeles.

The petition aims to honor the King of Pop, for his philanthropic work and humanitarian aid worldwide.

The organizer of the petition, Ron Pia, states that Jackson’s cultural significance as an influential figure in music, dance, and fashion, along with his generous donations of over $500 million to various charities, warrant the establishment of a dedicated day in his honor.

Najee Ali, Director of Project Islamic Hope, supports the initiative and emphasizes that Los Angeles, where Michael lived and tragically passed away, should commemorate its own cultural and philanthropic icon.

“Michael was born in Gary, Indiana along with all his siblings but he lived the majority of his life in Los Angeles with his family members where he also tragically died. Los Angeles should have a Michael Jackson Day in memory of its own cultural and philanthropic icon,” stated Najee Ali Director of Project Islamic Hope.
