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.

This year the conference offered special interactive programming to keep youth engaged in group activities. Children at the event expressed the feeling that being a part of the Muslim culture made them part of a larger extended family.
