On January 25, 2006 a U.S. Newswire press release reported, "Muslim American Society (MAS) Freedom Foundation Executive Director Mahdi Bray arrived Jan. 24 in Davos, Switzerland, as an invited speaker to the World Economic Forum. The Forum, which hosts world leaders, academicians, activists and economists, focuses on measures to redress balance in the global economy. MAS Freedom will join other world faith leaders in a joint press conference concerning global peace and justice. Bray has indicated that central to his agenda is promoting the concept of universal standards for global human rights. 'We discuss issues concerning global economics and global terrorism, but little is said about universal standards for global justice,' said Bray. 'It's my hope that the Religious Caucus of world leaders who are here would use their voices in concert to promote this important concept,' he added. Imam Mahdi Bray has been lobbying prominent religious leaders and other activists while at the World Economic Forum in supporting the concept of global justice."
