CAIR-San Diego Mayoral Forum a Success
(SAN DIEGO, CA, 9/16/05) - The San Diego office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-San Diego) hosted a forum for the Muslim community with mayoral candidate Donna Frye on September 15th.
The forum provided an opportunity for Councilwoman Frye to present her views to the Muslim community prior to the election. Frye began by answering a series of questions that were submitted prior to the event and ended by opening the floor to questions from the audience. Topics discussed ranged from concerns of housing ownership, to how Muslims can become more politically-involved.
“We thank Councilwoman Frye for willingness to engage the Muslim community and address its concerns,” said CAIR-San Diego Executive Director Omar Hassaine.
CAIR, America's largest Muslim civil liberties group, has 31 offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
