In the past CAIR-CAN has hosted various luminaries as its Gala dinner keynote speakers including the former Minister of Foreign Affairs the Hon. Lloyd Axworthy, Maher Arar and Monia Mazigh, journalist and author Naomi Klein, and documentary filmmaker Alexandre Trudeau.

This year is no different and we are honoured to be able to host a very special speaker: Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. While you may know Imam Feisal through his connection to the so-called ‘Ground-zero-mosque’ in New York his list of accomplishments and accolades extend far higher and beyond his involvement in this noteworthy project.

Imam Feisal is Chairman of the Cordoba Initiative, an independent, multi-national project that works to "Re-connect the MuslimWorldand the West." In 1997, he founded the American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA), the first Muslim organization committed to bringing American Muslims and non-Muslims together through programs in academia, policy, current affairs, and culture.

For the past 25 years, Imam Feisal has been Imam of Masjid al-Farah, a New York City mosque. He has won awards from The Alliance for International Conflict Prevention and Resolution and the Interfaith Center in New York.

Frequently asked to comment on issues pertaining to Islam and the Muslim world, he appeared regularly at the Council on Foreign Relations and the World Economic Forum (Davos), and in national and international media such as CNN, BBC, The New York Times, Washington Post, Frontline and Foreign Policy.

Our dinner will also afford you the opportunity to purchase and have signed Imam Feisal’s new book Moving the Mountain: Beyond Ground Zero to a New Vision of Islam in Americaslated to be published on May 8, 2012.

In closing we cordially invite you to spend an enjoyable evening listening to a high caliber speaker accompanied by fine dining and with time to mix and mingle with friends, co-workers and your peers with our iron-clad guarantee that there will be no ‘fundraising segment’ to the event. We look forward to seeing you.
