CAIR Action Alert: Tell Congress to Support Free Speech by Opposing ‘Combating BDS Act’

CAIR logo(WASHINGTON, D.C, 6/8/2016) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy group, today called on American Muslims and other people of conscience to contact their elected representatives in Congress to urge them to oppose the “Combating BDS Act of 2016,” which would violate the constitutionally-guaranteed free speech rights of businesses and institutions that participate in the international boycott of Israel's illegal occupation of the West Bank.

Sponsored earlier this year by Senators Mark Kirk (R-IL) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Reps. Robert Dold (R-IL) and Juan Vargas (D-CA), the bill authorizes “State and local governments to divest from entities that engage in commerce-related or investment-related boycott, divestment, or sanctions activities targeting Israel.”

CAIR also launched an online action alert urging American’s who value the First Amendment-protected right of boycotting to contact their members of Congress to oppose S.2531 and H.R.4514.

The two resolutions, “Recognizing the Accomplishments of Muslim Citizens” and “Faith in Our State and Laws,” along with step-by-step advice on the introduction and passage of those resolutions, are part of a new CAIR toolkit called “Recognizing American Muslim contributions in Our States.”
