CAIR Celebrates First Muslim Woman Elected to Pennsylvania House of Representatives

Movita Johnson-Harrell was elected to Pennsylvania House of Representatives, District 190, on March 12th 2019. Johnson-Harrell won the Special General Election with 66.7% of the vote. She is the first muslim elected to Pennsylvania House of Representatives.

Johnson-Harrell an anti-gun advocate. In 2013, she lost her son after he was shot and killed. Johnson-Harrell, like most Democrats, she blames the gun instead of the person who pulled the trigger. After losing her son, Johnson-Harrell started The CHARLES Foundation, a foundation which advocates for more gun laws.

Not surprisingly, CAIR is celebrating Johnson-Harrell’s win. The Philadelphia chapter of CAIR shared a video of Johnson-Harrell’s Swearing-In Ceremony and wrote:

Say MashaAllah! State Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell started to serve today. Another Muslim in PA Legislature and the first woman. A historic day🎉🎉🎉
