As part of Muslim Journeys Programming, Fatima Dadabhoy from the Council of American-Islamic Relations, Los Angeles, will speak.

Dadabhoy obtained her BA in History with an emphasis on Middle Eastern History from California State University, Long Beach. She received her J.D. degree from Santa Clara University School of Law. After graduating, Ms. Dadabhoy served as a law clerk for the Civil Rights Department at CAIR-LA, handling incident reports and immigration cases related to naturalization delays. Prior to joining CAIR-LA as the Civil Rights Attorney, she worked in private practice for a small civil litigation firm in Chino Hills. She primarily handled cases in the area of Employment Law. Ms. Dadabhoy later left the firm to open up her own practice. However, her main interest remained civil rights work and she eagerly joined the CAIR-LA staff in August to pursue such work on behalf of the American-Muslim community. Ms. Dadabhoy handles cases in the areas of employment discrimination, school bullying and mosque construction. She is currently lead staff attorney at CAIR-LA.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information on the Muslim Journeys Programming please contact Melissa Cardenas-Dow. For Campus Diversity and Inclusion please contact Leela MadhavaRau at leela_madhavarau@redlands.edu or 909-748-8285.
