Anaheim Convention Center
(ANAHEIM, CA, 10/29/12) - On Nov. 3, CAIR-Greater Los Angeles Area office will present Japanese American filmmaker Konrad Aderer with the 2012 "Courage in Media" Award for his extensive work in shedding light on communities worldwide affected by grave issues such as deportation and detention, economic crises, and poverty.
In one of his most recent films, Enemy Alien, produced under the Life or Liberty nonprofit multimedia endeavor, Aderer finds echoes of his own family's World War II incarceration in post-9/11 detentions of Muslim immigrants as he joins the fight to free the late Farouk Abdel-Muhti, a Palestinian activist detained by the DHS.
Join us on Saturday, Nov. 3, at CAIR-LA’s 16th Annual Banquet, Upholding Our Constitution | Defending Our Faith as we recognize Konrad Aderer for his work. Enemy Alien DVDs will also be available for purchase at the banquet.
Other featured speakers and honorees include Michael Ratner of Center for Constitutional Rights, and Nathan Lean, author of The Islamophobia Industry: How the Right Manufactures Fear of Muslims.
