The Muslim American Society (MAS) Milwaukee held its 12th Annual Conference on March 30 and 31 at the Crowne Plaza Milwaukee Airport. The Wisconsin Muslim Journal attended the two-day program, recording keynote speakers and photo documenting the event which also served as a community platform. This feature is part of an editorial series put together to highlight the many important topics that were discussed by national leaders over the weekend.

With an ultra-conservative influence shaping American political thinking, Dr. Osama Abu-Irshaid spoke about how foreign policy during the Trump presidency was affecting the Middle East, and what the possible outcomes would be for nations like Palestine and Syria. Dr. Abu-Irshaid is the National Director of American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) and serves on the board of the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations.
