Ahmadiyya Muslim Congressional Caucus
Ahmadiyya Muslim Caucus
Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) – Co-Chair
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) – Co-Chair
Formation & Purpose:
In 2014, former Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA) and Representative Jackie Speier (D-CA) established the Ahmadiyya Muslim Congressional Caucus to educate members of the U.S. Congress about the repression of religious minorities worldwide (especially in South Asia and the Middle East), including Ahmadi Muslims, Christians, Rohingya Muslims, Uyghur Muslims, and other persecuted communities. The Caucus endeavors to forge a bipartisan effort to advocate promptly on behalf of oppressed Ahmadi Muslim communities and prisoners of conscience, consistent with the objectives of the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998.
Since its inception, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Caucus has made significant strides. It now consists of over 33 members of Congress, Republicans and Democrats. It regularly corresponds with the U.S. State Department and members of the diplomatic corps on various pressing human rights issues, including the deleterious effects of anti-blasphemy laws and voter disenfranchisement legislation in Pakistan. The current co-chairs of Ahmadiyya Muslim Caucus are Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA 14) and Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX 10).
