Thank you all for your support of Muslim Advocates 10-year anniversary D.C. Dinner as we celebrate a decade of working on the frontlines of civil rights to guarantee freedom and justice for Americans of all faiths.
During the evening, Muslim Advocates will welcome U.S. Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch in her first public event with the American Muslim community. Attorney General Lynch will discuss the priorities of the U.S. Department of Justice, particularly its efforts to combat anti-Muslim hate and discrimination.
Attorney General Lynch began her career in public service as a federal prosecutor with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York, located in Brooklyn, NY in 1990 where she pursued narcotics, violent crime, public corruption, and civil rights cases. In 1999, President Clinton appointed her to lead the office as United States Attorney—a post she held until 2001 and then resumed in 2010 when she was appointed by President Obama. In 2002, she joined Hogan & Hartson LLP (now Hogan Lovells) as a partner in the firm’s New York office where she performed extensive pro bono work protecting human rights. She is a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School.
Dean Obeidallah, a lawyer and nationally-renowned comedian, will be the master of ceremonies for the evening. Dean is the Host of SiriusXM radio’s “The Dean Obeidallah Show,” a columnist for The Daily Beast, regularly appears on CNN, MSNBC and many other outlets, and is co-director and co-producer of the award-winning documentary “The Muslims Are Coming!”
