Khizr Khan in Hillary Clinton campaign video

The Muslim Educational Trust invited Muslim Gold Star father and attorney Khizr Khan to speak in Tigard on October 23.

Khan is the father of Captain Humayun Khan, who was killed in Iraq in 2004 while serving in the US Army. Captain Khan, a war hero, was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart.

The event was from 7pm - 9pm Sunday Oct. 23 at the MET Community and Educational Center, 10330 SW Scholls Ferry Road, Tigard, Oregon, 97223

Mr Khan became active in the Hillary Clinton campaign after attacks on Muslims by Donald Trump during his campaign rallies. A graduate of Harvard Law School he works with immigration and international business law firms. He also founded a pro bono project to provide legal services for the families of men and women serving in the military.

In its invitation the trust says:

"In one of the biggest election years in our nation's history, we call on our friends, community members, and leaders to become more civically involved. Join us for a conversation about the current wave of Islamophobia and the importance of getting our voices heard."

Parking is available in the lot in front of the facility. Additional street parking is available on SW Conestoga Parkway and SW Springwood Drive.
