CAIR-GA has documented reports of Muslims in the Metro-Atlanta area who
have experienced employment-related and other forms of discrimination or bias.
“We believe that many incidents of Islamophobic discrimination can be
prevented if American Muslims understand their legal rights and play an
active and constructive role in local communities,” said CAIR-GA Executive
Director Yusof Burke.
