Communications Coordinator Presents at Annual Muslim Convention


Feature 361 CAIR-Chicago Communications Coordinator, Amina Sharif, presented last week at the Mosque Cares Annual Convention, held jointly this year with their annual Ramadan Session, hosted by the W.D. Mohammed Ministry.

Sharif, along with former Communications Coordinator Reem Rahman, delivered a workshop entitled “How to be an Effective Media Spokesperson.” The seminar offered practical tips on how to communicate with media and produce stories that relate to American Muslims. Participants were also instructed on how to cultivate a relationship with local media and given best communication practices for producing positive public relations.

Attendees came from all parts of the nation, some travelling from California, New Jersey and, Georgia. Most represented their local Muslim organizations as Imams or public relations directors. A question answer session following the workshop allowed attendees to seek advice specific to their situation and needs.

“It is so important that every Muslim organization have adept, eloquent spokespersons who can accurately represent Muslim-Americans and our perspectives,” said Sharif. “The seminar was a great opportunity to share hard-earned tips, insights, and methods of engaging media, with those who serve as representatives of Muslim communities.”

The theme of this year’s convention was “Shared Freedom Space…Believers in Unity for Progress.” The four-day event, which took place in Tinley Park, IL, drew hundreds of Muslims from across the country, primarily followers of the late W.D. Mohammed.
