LA Times Names CAIR's Nihad Awad One of Nation's 'New Civil Rights Leaders'

WASHINGTON - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today said the Los Angeles Times has named its National Executive Director Nihad Awad as one of the nation's "new civil rights leaders."

CAIR was listed along with a number of other civil rights activists "fighting battles old and new" in the newspaper's coverage marking this month's 50th anniversary of the historic march on Selma.
