Corey Saylor - National Legislative Director

corey-saylorCorey Saylor is legislative director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), with more than a decade of nonprofit political communications, legislative advocacy, and media relations experience.

Saylor played a role in advocacy campaigns drawing concessions from corporate giants such as Burger King and Bell Helicopter-Boeing.

His media relations efforts have placed stories in most major national and international media, including London’s Financial Times and Al-Hayat. Additionally, news outlets such as the New York Times, Washington Post, Newsweek, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and NPR have sought Saylor’s opinions.

The Philadelphia Inquirer named a Saylor-maintained blog focused on the 2005-2006 reauthorization of the USA PATRIOT ACT, a “Web Winner.” His criticism of bigoted remarks by Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA) helped draw national media focus to the issue.

Saylor has conducted dozens of leadership, advocacy and media training across the United States.
