Program Details: (source: http://www.thecitycircle.com/events_full_text.php?id=416 )

Join us for a transatlantic dialogue with Ahmed Rehab, the Executive Director of the Chicago-branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Chicago). CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties group.

Ahmed Rehab will be discussing a number of topics relating to the importance of professional civic engagement; notably the American-Muslim activist model, focusing on his experience over the last two years building the Chicago office, one of CAIR’s largest chapters, into a pro-active force for justice and civil liberties.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations is a grassroots civil rights and advocacy group. CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties group, with regional offices nationwide and in Canada. The national headquarters is located on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C.

Since its establishment in 1994, CAIR has worked to promote a positive image of Islam and Muslims in America. Through media relations, lobbying, education and advocacy, CAIR puts forth an Islamic perspective to ensure the Muslim voice is represented. In offering this perspective, CAIR seeks to empower the American Muslim community and encourage their participation in political and social activism.

Prior to joining CAIR, Ahmed was a freelance speaker, writer, and activist in the fields of interfaith collaboration, education, and community outreach. Ahmed is a firm believer in the need to reach out and build bridges with "the other" as the most effective way to battle ignorance and suspicion.

Ahmed is keen on exploring diverse opportunities for transatlantic dialogue with British Muslim professionals.

All welcome. No entrance fee.
