The event creator says
At a time when American Muslims are facing unprecedented levels of scrutiny from the media, law enforcement and some of our fellow Americans, we need to build strength within our community to address the challenges we face. Our keynote speaker, Dean Obeidallah, has been on the forefront of using media and comedy to present a strong and pragmatic face of Islam in America. When he was at the White House a week before the North Carolina killings, he spoke to President Obama about the dramatic rise in anti-Islamic rhetoric in the media, and how it might lead to anti-Muslim hate crimes. He has a long track record of using comedy to build bridges between Americans of different faiths. MPA is delighted to have Dean come to Houston and address our community about how he sees media as the solution, not just the problem, for our current situation.
