CAIR Georgia Delivers Self-Defense Training at W.D. Mohammed High School on Anniversary of Columbine Shooting

WD School(ATLANTA, GA - 4/20/17) The Georgia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations today delivered a self-defense training to students and staff at W.D. Mohammed High School. During the presentation, which was held on the eighteenth anniversary of the Columbine school shooting, CAIR-GA executive director Edward Ahmed Mitchell walked the audience through how to handle an active shooter situation, offered tips on physical self-defense, and discussed building security.

"Given the rise in anti-Muslim hate crimes, even Georgia's Islamic private schools should pray for the best and prepare for the worst," Mitchell said. "Every private school should employ at least one armed security guard, keep their entry doors locked 24/7, monitor the campus with security cameras, and train students to respond to an emergency situation, including active shooter scenarios."

Students at W.D. Mohammed High School also practiced an emergency evacuation under the supervision of local law enforcement.
