[Michigan, August 26, 2021]: The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) extends its congratulations to the Michigan Muslim Community Council’s (MMCC) entire team and its chairman Dr. Mahmoud Al-Hadidi for receiving the FBI Director’s 2021 Community Leadership Award (DCLA). The formal award ceremony was held on Monday, August 23, 2021 at the FBI’s Detroit field office.
The award is a prestigious recognition presented annually by each FBI field office in the United States in recognition of an individual or organization whose hard work has led to the betterment of their community.
The award recognizes the leading humanitarian efforts of MMCC at the early stage of the Covid-19 pandemic crisis. These tireless efforts by the MMCC lasted two years with its dedicated volunteers distributing food pantries in the tri-county area in cities such as Detroit, Warren, Dearborn, and Hamtramck. More than 100.000 families benefited from this food-pantry drive on a weekly basis.
MMCC’s leading effort was one of several community initiatives that stepped up to the challenge and lent a helping hand to those less fortunate during one of the most difficult times that faced Michigan and the nation. This award to the MMCC is a well-deserved recognition and a tribute to MMCC’s leadership as well as to the volunteers who worked hard to distribute the food.
“MMCC’s efforts reflect the devotion of the Arab and Muslim American communities to their larger communities and to the state,” said Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director. “As has often been pointed out, faith demands good citizenship,” added Hamad.
