ORLANDO — The Council on American-Islamic Relations opened its Orlando office Saturday, just blocks from where neo-Nazis marched before a rally.

The CAIR office on Parramore Avenue between Robinson and Washington streets will help Muslims on issues such as political participation, civil rights and an interfaith dialogue.

The office is the group’s third in Florida and one of more than 30 nationwide. CAIR, the country’s largest Islamic civil-liberties group, is based in Washington.
