REPORT TO EXAMINE U.S. MUSLIMS' ROLE IN FOREIGN POLICY


(CHICAGO, IL, 6/25/07) - On June 26, a representative of the Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Chicago) will be available to discuss the findings of a task force of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs that considered how to engage American Muslims more fully in the national discourse on foreign policy. CAIR-Chicago Executive Director Ahmed Rehab is a member of the task force.

The task force's report will be released June 26 at a Wilson Center event in Washington, D.C. Rehab, based in Chicago, will be available for comment after the release of the report.

SEE: Chicago Council on Global Affairs' Task Force Report on Muslim Americans in the U.S. Foreign Policy Discourse

The recommendations of the report will focus on engaging Muslims in the policy process, addressing national security needs, improving cooperation between the American Muslim community and government agencies, increasing American Muslim civic engagement, educating the American public about the Muslim community, strengthening the structure and capacity of existing American Muslim organizations, and developing new institutions for serving these goals.

CAIR, America's largest Muslim civil liberties group, has 33 offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
