LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Muslims from across Michigan plan to gather at the state Capitol to interact with lawmakers and other leaders and build trust and understanding with political leaders and the broader public.

The annual Michigan Muslim Capitol Day set for Tuesday is organized by the Michigan Muslim Community Council, which is working with the National Network for Arab American Communities. Representatives of the Dearborn-based network will discuss Take on Hate - a campaign to challenge discrimination against U.S. Arabs and Muslims.

Keynote guests include former Democratic state Rep. Rashida Tlaib, campaign manager for Take on Hate, and Michigan Supreme Court Judge Stephen Markman.

The invocation in the state House is scheduled to be delivered by Zaynab Salman, a high school teacher and community activist.
