In a statement, CWSC 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. 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.

“We’re particularly pleased to have Attorney Mitchell as a host, and we look forward to the new weekly program and also (Insha Allah) 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.”
