BOSTON (AP) - The first Muslim Day on the Hill will be held this week at the Massachusetts Statehouse.

The event on Thursday will give Muslim voters an opportunity to meet their state legislators and advocate for legislation of importance to the Muslim community and to all Americans.

The Massachusetts chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations will join a coalition of Muslim advocacy groups at the event.

Speakers will include State Rep. Marjorie Decker, state Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz, Cambridge City Councilor Nadeem Mazen and Harvard Islamic Chaplain Taymullah Abdur-Rahman.
