Muslim Advocates Annual Dinner
Featuring MSNBC's Chris Matthews

*Adults only please*

Dear Friend,
We are excited to announce that tickets are now on sale for our November 15th annual D.C. dinner with MSNBC's Chris Matthews at The Ritz-Carlton in Arlington, VA.  We are currently offering an early bird ticket price of $100 per person until October 31st, so we hope you will purchase your tickets today! 

During the evening, we will be honoring Chris Matthews of MSNBC for his leadership in advancing civil rights for all Americans.  Mr. Matthews will also be joining our Executive Director, Farhana Khera, onstage to discuss protecting the rights of Americans of all faiths.
Chris Matthews began his career on television in 1994 as host of a two-hour nightly program on the NBC-owned American's Talking network.  Three years later, he launched Hardball with Chris Matthews, now on MSNBC, which was the title of his best-selling handbook on real-life politics published in 1988.  He has been on the air every weekday night since.  Previously to his career on television, Chris Matthews has served in the U.S. Senate, as a presidential speechwriter, a top aide to the Speaker of the House, and Washington Bureau Chief for the San Francisco Examiner.  Throughout his career, he has never lost his vigorous love of democracy and how it can serve to make this country, through all its challenges, a more perfect union.
We will also be honoring the law firm Hogan Lovells during dinner.  Hogan Lovells has been a longstanding pillar of the international legal community, and its attorneys have taken on a variety of human rights, civil rights, and civil liberties cases across the world.  Recently, Hogan authored an amicus brief in support of the Muslim Advocates appeal in the Hassan v. City of New York matter, which is pending before the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals.  Christopher Wolf, a partner with Hogan Lovells, is also an invaluable participant in the anti-cyberhate working group that brings together leading internet companies and advocacy groups to address online hate for all communities.  Muslim Advocates is incredibly grateful to Hogan for bravely standing with us in the fight for equality, liberty, and justice for all, regardless of faith.
