Hizb ut-Tahrir America (HTA) has a launched a Web Site to promote its July 19th, 2009 Khilafah Conference in Bridgeview, Illinois.
The site provides an agenda for the conference, but does not provide a list of invited speakers or any contact information for the organizers.
The well-designed site indicates that HTA is taking steps to create an impression with the public and with its target audience that it is a solidly established institution.
Most likely, HTA's membership and support base in the United States numbers only in the hundreds. Due to the fact that HTA's operations have been largely clandestine until now, it has been difficult to determine the size of its ranks. However, several known members have status and influence in universities and in their communities.
