Zahra Billoo, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in San Francisco, a non-profit civil right and advocacy group, will be speaking at Cal State East Bay on Thursday, January 31 at 3:00pm in the ASI Diversity Center.

Billoo will talk about knowing your rights and provide information on how to help others. She frequently provides training at local mosques and universities as part of CAIR’s efforts to empower the community, while building bridges with allies on key civil rights issues. Billoo also represents victims of discrimination and advocates for positive policy changes that uphold civil rights for all.

Her work with CAIR-SFBA has been highlighted in local and national media outlets including KTVU, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, the Christian Science Monitor, and NPR. Most notably, she made waves when she appeared on FOX News’ O'Reilly Factor in Fall 2010 to discuss invasive TSA practices. Visit the CAIR Web site.
