CAIR-Georgia is one of over thirty chapters of the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization. CAIR’s 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.
“I thank American Muslim 360 for inviting us to host this timely and educational program,” said Edward Ahmed Mitchell. “During interviews with various guests, we plan to address current events impacting the American Muslim community, including developments related to civil rights, Islamophobia, and social justice movements.”
As the leader of CAIR-Georgia, Mitchell oversees a diverse state that includes Atlanta, a historic bastion of civil rights and progressive activism. He’s also no stranger to the CWSC or AM360.org, having appeared as a guest panelist at the CWSC February 2018 National Townhall on Diversity in the 21st Century American Muslim Intelligentsia aired live on AM360.org.
CWSC’s Executive Director Mukhtar Muhammad said, “It’s been our desire for some time to have CAIR and its tremendous work shared on air at AM360.org. The collaboration is of great benefit for both institutions and for the nation. I expressed to my brother National Director Nihad Awad of CWSC’s desire to work with CAIR and I’ve had on-going conversations with Attorney Mitchell. The combination of AM360.org and CAIR in helping to serve the American Muslim and even broader community with respect to education on the civil rights and social justice issues that should matter to all of us as citizens, is an unparalleled opportunity.”
Muhammad added, “We’re particularly pleased to have Attorney Mitchell as a host, and look forward to the new weekly program, and also the featured opportunity to meet his fellow CAIR directors and learn about issues across the country. We look forward to hearing from our CAIR National Executive Director too at headquarters in Washington. Praise be to Allah (SWT) for this powerful collaborative effort.”
