CAIR launches billboard campaign to promote tolerance


On Friday, February 1, 2002, the Council on American-Islamic Relations Southern California chapter (CAIR-LA) will launch a billboard campaign designed to promote tolerance, unity and kindness. The first billboard, "Even a smile is Charity - a message from your Muslim neighbor," shows how the simple act of smiling can promote goodwill.


The billboards will be located along major freeways in Los Angeles and Orange counties. Two more billboards are scheduled in San Bernardino for February. Each month, a new positive theme will be displayed on the billboards.
