CAIR-Arizona Condemns Distribution of Racist White Supremacist Flyers in Litchfield Park

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 5/28/2021) – The Arizona chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-AZ), a chapter of the nation’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization, today condemned the distribution of white supremacist flyers from a white nationalist group in Litchfield Park, Ariz.

A white nationalist group spread racist propaganda and white supremacist recruiting materials on doorsteps in that city. Maricopa County Sheriff’s officials said they are looking into whether any crimes had been committed through the hate group’s actions.

“It is imperative for police to take appropriate action and prevent these hate groups from harassing and intimidating minority communities,” said CAIR-AZ Executive Director Azza Abuseif. “All citizens of our state deserve to feel safe from this kind of bigotry.”

Abuseif said the American Muslim community and CAIR are standing in solidarity with all those challenging anti-Black racism, xenophobia, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, white supremacy, and all other forms of bigotry.
