CAIR Rep Participates in Forum for Chinese Imam
CAIR Civil Rights Manager Khadija Athman participated yesterday in a panel discussion hosted by the Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program for Imam Ma Guiyue of China. The Imam is in the United States to learn about issues related to religious diversity, religious freedom and tolerance.
Panel members discussed how laws protecting religious freedom in the United States impact members of their faith and how organizations such as CAIR work to protect those freedoms. The discussion also touched on how religious organizations are working to foster tolerance of other religious traditions.
Representatives of Christianity and Native American religious traditions also took part in the discussion.
