(Photo courtesy of CAIR/Liam Foskett) Rep. Ben McAdams, D-Utah, discusses civil rights with attorney Carolyn Homer at a May 21, 2019, U.S. Capitol iftar dinner hosted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Homer is a civil rights attorney with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
