ADC will present the award at the annual Civil Rights Luncheon on Friday, June 12, 2015, as part of the 35th Anniversary ADC National Convention in Washington, DC.
Currently a Program Associate in the St. Louis Office of the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri (ACLU-MO), Mustafa Abdullah has demonstrated a strong commitment to civil engagement through advocacy, interfaith work, and community organizing.
Mustafa is a co-founder of Muslims for Ferguson,an organization of American Muslims who are committed to seeking justice for Michael Brown and supporting relevant important campaigns in Ferguson.
When the law enforcement cracked down on protesters in Ferguson last summer following the death of Michael Brown, Mustafa organized the Muslim community to act in solidarity with the issues facing the African-American community in Ferguson.
