Since June, CAIR Georgia executive director Edward Ahmed Mitchell has met with six Rotary Clubs to explain who Muslims are, what Muslims believe, what Muslims practice, and answer questions.
"We greatly appreciated the invitation to speak with six different Rotary Clubs across Metro-Atlanta this summer," Mitchell said. "We delivered educational presentations, engaged in interfaith dialogue, and answered any and all questions."
ATLANTA, GA - 8/28/17) The Georgia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations today thanked Atlanta's mayoral candidates for meeting with Atlanta Muslim leaders to discuss issues of importance to the community. CAIR Georgia has also delivered an issue-based questionnaire to each candidate, as well as an invitation to visit the city's largest Muslim houses of worship.
"Atlanta is home to dozens of mosques, as well as thousands of Georgia Muslims who care deeply about the future of the city," said Edward Ahmed Mitchell, executive director of CAIR Georgia. "We encourage every candidate to engage in further and direct dialogue with Atlanta Muslim voters, who could easily swing the results of a close election."
