Keith Ellison to Speak at CAIR-LA Banquet

Anaheim, CA: US Rep Keith Ellison (D-MN), the nation's first elected Muslim Congressman, will deliver keynote address at the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Greater Los Angeles Area's 11th Annual Banquet scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 10. This will be Congressman Ellison’s first public address in Southern California since getting elected.
The event will be a great opportunity to hear the Congressman speak about his vision and hope for the American Muslim community despite the challenges Muslims have endured over the past several years and the importance of sustained outreach to the larger society.
Other guests include former diplomat and author Michael Morgan, CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad, and Imam Siraj Wahhaj of Masjid Al-Taqwa in Brooklyn, NY.
Over the past 11 years, the Southern California Muslim community has seen CAIR-LA work to protect and uphold American Muslims' civil rights, politically empower them, educate America on Islam, and partner with various community and interfaith groups to work on social justice issues.
These are excellent reasons for you to buy tickets to CAIR's upcoming banquet. In the past five years, the event was sold out, with almost 2,000 attendees. Don't take a chance. Reserve your seat online today.
