(ORLANDO, FL, 10/1/07) – Dozens of members of the interfaith and Muslim communities turned out on Saturday for the second annual “Sharing Ramadan” program of the Orlando chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Orlando).
The program featured a traditional fast-breaking (iftar) and presentations by three CAIR-Orlando activists on their spiritual journeys through Ramadan.
Several speakers expressed support for CAIR and its mission. Professor Stephen Day, a scholar of American government, addressed the crowd to thank CAIR-Orlando for demonstrating leadership in education.
He also stated: “I have greatly appreciated the role that CAIR plays in the community…CAIR addresses issues of real concern to Americans whether Muslim or Non-Muslim.”
CAIR, America’s largest Islamic civil liberties and advocacy group, has 33 offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is to promote a greater understanding of Islam, advocate for justice, and empower American Muslims.
