CAIR-LA to Take Part in First LAPD Muslim Forum Meeting

By SOP newswire

Representatives of the Greater Los Angeles Area chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-LA) will take part in tonight's first meeting of the Los Angeles Police Department's (LAPD) Muslim Community Forum.

The forum was initiated following controversy over a proposed LAPD "mapping" of the city's Muslim community. That proposal was dropped after objections from Muslim and civil rights groups.
