A team of approximately 50 local Muslims took part in the 2009 Edmonds 4th of July Parade in Edmonds. The Muslim team carried its own banners and included youth, families, activists, U.S. military veterans, and community leaders.

“American Muslims represent broad ethnic and professional backgrounds,” said American Muslims of Puget Sound member Jafar Siddiqui. “We are productive members of society and proud Americans.” ♦
