The banquet, which had a strong attendance particularly from the Dar Al-Hijrah Muslim community, featured prominent civil rights activists including keynote speaker Glen Greenwald, an activist constitutional law attorney who is a widely read blogger and author, and former Army Chaplain at Guantanamo Bay James Yee.
Below are some photos from the fundraising banquet.
Banners on display at the NCPCF banquet, some advocating for particular Muslim prisoners caught up in what civil rights activists say is an overzealous government crackdown on 'homegrown terrorists'. A survey of 'home grown terrorism' convictions has shown that most successful government prosecutions involve paid informants of ill repute who work to entrap young American Muslims men in fake FBI concocted terror plots.
