On Saturday, October 15, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) will hold its annual leadership skills training conference and banquet at the Crystal Gateway Marriott (1700 Jefferson Davis Highway) in Arlington, Va.
With the theme “Making Democracy Work for Everyone,” the evening banquet will feature Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA) and Imam Siraj Wahhaj as keynote speakers.
The day-long leadership conference will offer workshops taught by top trainers in their fields. Leadership conference sessions include counteracting Islamophobia and the anti-sharia campaign; answering tough questions about Islam; effective fundraisin; challenging scapegoating of Muslims in the 2012 election; public speaking; and a primer on how civil rights have changed in the last 10 years.
Registration for the banquet and the leadership skills training conference is available online at http://www.cair.com/banquet/
Last year the leadership conference and banquet sold out. No tickets are sold at the door, so register early to reserve a place.
