“Islamic teaching strongly promotes active citizenship to serve the country we call home.

It is important to vote, stand up and speak,” said Sarwat Husain, president CAIR-SA.

CAIR is monitoring a troubling spike in hate incidents targeting the American Muslims and other minority groups since the November 8 election.

Muslim community members who believe their rights have been violated are being asked to contact local police and CAIR’s Civil Rights Department at 202-742-6420 or by filing a report at: http://www.cair.com/civil-rights/report-an-incident/view/form.html

La misión de CAIR es mejorar la comprensión del Islam, fomentar el diálogo, proteger las libertades civiles, capacitar a los musulmanes estadounidenses, y construir coaliciones que promuevan la justicia y la comprensión mutua.
