CAIR #EverydayMuslims — Faiza Mustapha of Silver Spring, Md.

CAIR today revealed the February feature if its “Everyday Muslims” portrait series in Maryland. February’s everyday Muslim is Faiza Mustapha of Silver Spring, Md. 

In January 2019, CAIR launched a yearlong social media campaign to mark the one-year anniversary of the civil rights organization’s office in Maryland. The office opened on January 27, 2018 to coincide with the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump’s first Muslim ban.

At the end of each month, this campaign features ordinary Muslims in Maryland improving society in extraordinary ways. Each portrait is accompanied by their words on what compels and motivates them to serve. 

The goal of the series is to celebrate diversity, promote inclusivity and challenge islamophobia by showcasing stories of Muslims who help enrich the fabric of the state.

The campaign is designed to amplify the “EverydayMuslims” project created by CAIR’s Washington state chapter. It reminds audiences that Muslims have always been a part of the fabric of the American story. Visit this link to learn more about the inspiration behind that project: https://www.facebook.com/pg/EverydayMuslimsWA/about/

CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance understanding of Islam, protect civil rights, promote justice, and empower American Muslims.
