Los Angeles: On May 7, 2011, the Council of Pakistan and American Affairs with the support of the Los Angeles Police Department will host their first American Muslim Women’s Empowerment Conference. The objective of the Conference is to provide information and enhance overall awareness regarding women’s rights and their civic responsibility. The goal is to empower Muslim women with the requisite skills and knowledge to participate politically and socially in their communities and provide support and guidance to their peers.
Greater participation in community governance will help to create an environment where American Muslim women can come together and contribute to the discourse against biased interpretation of Islam.
