On Wednesday, February 22, 2017 representatives of the American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) and the Detroit Urban League (DUL) met and discussed issues of common interests and common concern to their respective constituencies.
Both organizations agreed that there are tremendous challenges facing the US nowadays as a result of the new immigration policies and the Muslim Ban and its impact on the communities in Michigan and across the nation. Both organizations recognized the importance of coalition making and collaboration in order to effectively face and meet such challenges. Both sides affirmed their commitment to continue working together in this very unpredictable political environment.
After meeting with Mr. Hamad, Mr. Charles Anderson, President & CEO of DUL in Michigan, stated: “It was truly my privilege to break bread today with my friend Imad Hamad. We have common interests and concerns about the political atmosphere and the attitudes being displayed as to our communities today. Our mutual desires to support the human rights of people of all ethnicities in the United States and around the world is a belief of which we can readily and actively work together to advocate for.”
“AHRC and our brothers and sisters in the Detroit Urban League are working for the same goal- improving the lives of human beings,” said Imad Hamad, AHRC executive Director. “The Detroit Urban league is a true partner and champion fighting on behalf of social justice and equality for all and we look forward to strengthening our friendship and ties,” continued Hamad.
The Detroit Urban League will be holding its 38th Annual Salute to Distinguished Warriors Dinner on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at 6:00pm at the Detroit Marriot Renaissance Center. AHRC is a proud friend and supporter of the Detroit Urban League.
