On August 14, 2003 the Muslim Public Affairs Council reported that "MPAC, along with a very wide coalition of interfaith, civil rights and academic freedom groups, participated in a packed press conference this morning at the National Press Building in Washington DC decrying the possible recess appointment of Daniel Pipes to the United States Institute for Peace (USIP)... The press conference was moderated by Dr. Reverend Welton Gaddy, president of the Interfaith Alliance, a national, grassroots, non-partisan, faith-based organization of 150,000 members who come from over 65 different religious traditions."
