Washington, DC – This afternoon, Congressman David Price (NC-04) announced that he will host Faisal Khan, a Muslim-American peace activist from Morrisville, at this evening’s address by President Trump to a Joint Session of Congress. Mr. Khan has been a tireless advocate for immigrants and refugees in the Triangle. He has led interfaith dialogue between leaders of diverse communities of faith, work for which he was awarded CAIR’s 2007 Courage Award. Mr. Khan also founded the Carolina Peace Center to advocate for tolerance in North Carolina, and he serves on the Board of Directors of the Coalition for Peace with Justice, an organization that promotes a just and sustainable peace between Israel and Palestine.
“I am pleased to welcome Faisal to Washington,” said Congressman Price. “I have been honored to work closely with him on behalf of refugee and immigrant families in the Fourth District, and I have long admired his advocacy for tolerance and peace. In the face of the President’s continuing attacks on immigrants and refugees, I am particularly pleased to welcome Faisal Khan, a courageous voice for our national values of acceptance and equality.”
