CAIR-AZ Event: Implications of SB1070 for You and Me

(PHOENIX, AZ, 5/6/10) — On May 15, the Arizona chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR-AZ) will hold an event at the ASU Tempe campus to discuss the implications of SB1070. The event is scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m. at the Memorial Union Building, room 230.

Speakers at the event will include Ed Ableser from the Arizona House of Representatives, Alessandra Soler Meetze, from the Arizona chapter of the ACLU, and Attorney of Law Antonio Bustmante.

“CAIR is a civil rights organization first and foremost. Therefore, we see the immigration debate at the heart of our organization’s mission. This controversial bill has created confusion in our community so knowing our rights is vital,” said Anas Hlayhel, the chairman of CAIR-AZ.

CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. 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.
