Walid speaks at community event in Farmington, Michigan

Yesterday evening, the Muslim families of Farmington/Farmington Hills held their 4th Annual Ramadan Community Dinner. This year's event, which was actually held after Ramadan, had in attendance officials from the Farmington school district including the superintendent and members of the school board.

The title of the speech given was "Islam - a Proactive Way of Life." Questions were also answered in regard to the work of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Cut and paste to listen:

On Monday, October 30, TV 7 - WXYZ in Detroit, Michigan aired a story about the 20th Annual Council on Islamic Organizations of Michigan (CIOM) Banquet, in which CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid received the Commmunity Service Award of the Year. CAIR's work in calling for the release of Ann Arbor native Jill Carroll earlier this year while she was held hostage in Iraq was highlighted in the 3 minute news story.
