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

  • Dr Osman Khan  - CAIR Annual Banquet 2011
    CAIR have picked up prudent theme and key note speakers worthy of listening to. I do admire and support CAIR agenda in presenting the true Islamic perspective against the Islamophobia and anti-Shariah lobby in our country.
  • Joseph Strohmier  - Top organization to support
    CAIR is one of the top Muslim organizations in this country, working hard to do the right thing and foster community relations and mutual understanding between all concerned. Providing guidance to tomorrow's leaders is a must, and CAIR is at the forefront. Please support them in this noble effort. Joseph S. USN Retired
