(SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, 3/16/17) – On March 17 and 18, the San Antonio, Texas, chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-San Antonio), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, will hold Muslim voter registration drives at locations frequented members of the local Islamic community.
March 17, 1:15 PM, at MCECC, 5281 Casa Bella San Antonio, TX 78249
March 18, 1:30 PM, at Mustafa Grocers, 4081 Medical Dr. San Antonio, TX, 78229
“Islamic teaching strongly promotes active citizenship to serve the country we call home. It is a moral obligation to promote civic responsibility for all the citizens of the country to become part and parcel of the American political process. 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
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.
