1/4/17 – CIOGC holds civic engagement meeting with community leaders

As President-elect Donald Trump’s administration will take office this month, American Muslims are facing increased challenges including rising hate crimes and violence against the Muslim community as well as serious threats of a Muslim registry, and increased harassment of Muslim organizations. In response to these threats, CIOGC held a civic engagement meeting on December 29 with community leaders from various Islamic institutions across Chicagoland. The goal of the meeting was to set an issues-based agenda for CIOGC civic engagement programs to address in 2017.

Special thanks go out to the attendees, organizers, and speakers including Dr. Mohammed Kaiseruddin (outgoing CIOGC Chair), Dr. Bassam Osman (incoming CIOGC Chair), Humaira Basith (Webb Foundation), Azam Nizamuddin (Islamic Foundation), Shoaib Quadri (ICN), Irshad Khan (IFN), Kareem Irfan (former CIOGC Chair), and Alia Ammar (MCC).
