  • “Your focus to educate and build bridges among people are a testament to the truth of America; that we are a more powerful, more secure, and more just nation when we celebrate and embrace our diversity.”
  • “As our country faces new threats to civil rights, it is crucial that active participation in our democracy be protected and allowed to prosper. CAIR’s efforts to provide American Muslims a voice in the public square and encourage civic engagement are vital as we work to unite against all forms of hate.”
  • “In the face of intolerant and exclusionary policies, CAIR has steadfastly defended the constitutional rights of American Muslims who aspire to build better lives for their families and contribute to our communities and our great nation. Today, as we continue to promote tolerance and eliminate hate in our society, CAIR’s work remains as important as it was the day of its founding in 1994.”
