The Following congratulatory letter was sent to all members of the New Jersey Congressional Delegation who won their elections on November 6, 2018:

On behalf of Muslim Americans in New Jersey, the New Jersey chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NJ) and the New Jersey Muslim Voters Project (NJMVP) would like to congratulate you on your electoral victory.  This is a great achievement for you and, in fact, for all of those who supported your campaign. 

In these trying times of divisiveness, we applaud the culture of inclusiveness that defines the great state of New Jersey and was reflected in the results of the past election.  We look forward to your support of this noble principle of inclusiveness through your public service. 

As civically engaged members of the community, we hope to join you in your endeavors to make this state, and in fact, this country a better and more just place for all Americans to live and thrive.
