CAIR Georgia joined a May 10th training session for social justice groups led by Rev. Dr. William Barber at The Temple, Atlanta's most prominent synagogue.
The Moral Political Organizing Leadership Institute (MPOLIS) hosted the event, which brought together leaders from various Georgia communities, including advocates of immigration reform, a higher minimum wage, expanded government healthcare and tolerance for minority communities.
The day-long training ended with a Muslim woman reciting Surah Al-Fatiha, the first chapter of the Quran, at the request of Dr. Barber.
(5/7/2016 - ATLANTA, GA) UPDATE: CAIR Georgia joined an Atlanta demonstration for the people of Syria on Friday, marching from the National Center for Civil and Human Rights to the CNN Center while demanding an end to Russian and Syrian airstrikes on civilians in Aleppo.
“Enough is enough,” said CAIR Georgia Executive Director Edward Ahmed Mitchell, “The Syrian regime is slaughtering innocent men, women and chidren before our very eyes. We must oppose this massacre with our resources and our words before Syria becomes the Rwanda of our generation.”
