(WASHINGTON, D.C., 4/26/16) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is calling on American Muslims and other people of conscience to help counter the continued introduction of unconstitutional and discriminatory “anti-Sharia,” “anti-foreign law,” and “anti-Islamic Indoctrination” bills in state legislatures nationwide by introducing a pair of anti-Islamophobia resolutions that recognize the contributions of American Muslims and reaffirm the right of citizens to practice their faith within the law and free of government interference.
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.”
Join the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, in thanking your congressman for co-sponsoring House Resolution 569, which condemns violence, bigotry and hateful rhetoric targeting American Muslims.
If your member of congress has not yet co-sponsored the resolution please take part in the letter below urging support for this bill.
