CAIR-AZ: Muslims Take Part in Diversity Luncheon

(PHOENIX, AZ, 1/17/05) – Representatives of the Arizona chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-AZ) and local Muslim community members recently participated in a luncheon hosted by the Arizona Republic newspaper’s Diversity Committee.

The Diversity Committee consists of staff members of the Arizona Republic who get together periodically for a brownbag lunch that features guest speakers.

Topics presented were Islam 101, Muslim Demographics, Muslims in Politics and Muslims in Arizona. The luncheon and presentations were followed by a Q&A session in which a healthy debate ensued.

Daniel Gonzalez, immigration reporter and coordinator of the event, said that the luncheon was the biggest turnout that the Diversity Committee has seen since its inception more than a year ago.
