More details about the event from CAIR:
“We look forward to connecting with you and sharing with you the great work we have been up to. The event is free and all are welcome.

We are incredibly excited about our 2023 Key Note Speaker. He is a Humanitarian, Activist, Author, and Former NBA Player. Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, of Gulfport, Mississippi was formerly known as Chris Jackson before reverting to Islam in 1991.

Mahmoud grew up with Tourettes syndrome(undiagnosed until the age of 17) and expresses he”Wouldn’t be the basketball player nor person he is off the court if it wasn’t for Tourette syndrome”. It’s also a driving force in supporting mental health causes and initiatives.

In his unwavering faith in Islam, Abdul Rauf preaches “The goal in life is to find your gift, the purpose in life is to away” which is why today Abdul Rauf spends his time Pulitzer extensively in the U.S. and abroad engagements and basketball training while also partnering with organizations that align with his faith on issues such as Education, Social Justice, Mental Health and Humanitarianism.”
