In celebration of last month’s Arab American Heritage Month, please join CAMBA on Tuesday, May 31st for a virtual conversation with Gadeir Abbas on the recent cases impacting Muslim Americans. Gadeir is an attorney with the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ headquarters in Washington D.C. At CAIR, Gadeir has argued in federal trial and appellate courts across the country on behalf of Muslims challenging religious discrimination of all kinds—at work, during travel, while incarcerated, against the government, and on campus. Those cases have led to settlements, judgements, and injunctions against Alaska, Texas, Oklahoma, prisons and jails in Virginia, Georgia, and Washington State, factories in Colorado and Wisconsin, anti-Muslim figures and organizations, and most federal law enforcement agencies.
Gadeir was on CAMBA’s board of directors from 2013 to 2015 and NAML’s board of directors from 2016 to 2021. He served as NAML’s president in 2018. Gadeir studied philosophy at Loyola University Chicago and law at Case Western Reserve University.
