CAIR-CA Report: More than Half of California Muslim Students Targeted by Faith-Based Bullying
CAIR's Executive Director Nihad Awad condemns terror attacks in Paris and suggest ways the American Muslim community and all Americans should respond at a news conference organized by the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) in Washington, D.C.
This campaign was a product of CAIR's strategic approach to reshaping perceptions about Islam and Muslims. In 2005, a CAIR survey confirmed earlier findings that 60 percent of Americans are not knowledgeable about Islam. However, a significant percentage welcomed the opportunity to learn about Islam. Nearly 1 in 5 Americans said that they would like to receive a free copy of the Quran.
Since the campaign was first launched, nearly 28,000 people have requested a free copy of the Quran. This report presents the current status of the campaign and identifies additional resources needed to continue the project to reach more Americans.
Mission Statement for "Explore the Quran" Campaign
In order to promote mutual understanding and educate others about Islam, CAIR will provide a free copy of the meaning of the Quran in English to Americans of other faiths.
