(CINCINNATI, 2/21/18) – On February 17, the Cincinnati chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Cincinnati) hosted a panel discussion entitled “Muslim ban, Refugee ban, DACA: A Year of Resistance.” The panel included speakers from CAIR-Cincinnati, ACLU, LULAC, Kentucky Refugee Ministries, and a local immigration law firm.
The panel members, as attorneys, community advocates and immigrants who deal with these issues every day, shared their insights into the chaos caused by government policies that are often inhumane. They also offered general advice to immigrants, as well as ideas for citizens who support immigrants’ rights and immigration reform.
“Our speakers presented thought-provoking and critical discussion as we work to move forward during this historic time and demand just and humane action from the Trump administration.” said Ms. Sana Hassan, CAIR-Cincinnati staff attorney and panelist.
CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. 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.
