CAIR-Chicago Civil Rights Coordinator Speaks at Panel on Muslim Women's Civil Rights



Approximately 30 people attended the panel where CAIR-Chicago's Civil Rights Coordinator Christina Abraham and two prominent civil rights attorneys presented on the civil rights of Muslim women at the new McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum.

The topic of the panel discussion was based on a pamphlet on Muslim women's civil rights that was put together by Engy Abdelkader, a civil rights attorney based in New Jersey and a board member of the Association of Muslim American Lawyers (AMAL). From identification photographs and security screenings to employment and housing discrimination, A Muslim Woman's Guide to Her Civil Rights outlines the religious protections under the First Amendment.

Both Muslims and Non-Muslims listened to Engy Abdelkader from AMAL, Christina Abraham from CAIR-Chicago, and Sara Schreiber from the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois (ACLU-IL) discuss issues pertinent to Muslim women's civil rights, the various shapes religious discrimination may take, and the options available to women who are victims of discrimination.

The program was developed by the McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum in partnership with the Chicago Advisory Council on Arab Affairs.
