Washington, DC | October 16, 2007 | www.adc.org |
The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) will be represented live by Kareem Shora, National Executive Director, on the Al-Jazeera Mubashar (Al-Jazeera Live) satellite news channel.
Al-Jazeera Mubashar is a channel of the Al-Jazeera Arabic satellite new network and is seen live exclusively in the Middle East and North Africa and the programming is similar in format to that of C-SPAN in the United States.
Shora will appear live from 2:00 to 3:00 pm EST (from 9:00 to 10:00 pm in most of the Middle East). He will be discussing the work of ADC, and the challenges and opportunities Arabs and Muslims have faced in the United States as a result of the environment created following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Shora will discuss the impact different government policies have had on the perception of Arabs and
Muslims in the United States and how the communities have used different methods and tools to address those policies.
As with all live television programming, the show is subject to change without notice.
