(LAS VEGAS, NV, 7/21/2008) – More than 200 people turned out on Saturday for the first annual Community Service Fair hosted by the Nevada chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NV).
Members of the southern Nevada Muslim community enjoyed games, sports, halal food, and registered to vote in the upcoming presidential elections. Representatives from the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC), Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, and Democracia USA, were on hand to offer free advice and assistance to attendees.
The purpose of the event was to provide members of the Muslim community assistance with their legal needs by giving them direct access with various governmental institutions and groups.

Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding
