CAIR-Texas Central North chapter is joined in this event with its sister chapters, CAIR Houston and CAIR San Antonio for a night of discussion and community building on Facebook and YouTube live. 

In a statement, CAIR-TX (CN) Government Affairs Manager, William White said:   

“I’m very excited for what our team has done to make this available for the community from around Texas. I’m especially thankful to our sponsors, North Austin Muslim Community Center, the Islamic Society of Greater Houston, AMP-Texas, and ICNA for their support.”  

Texas is a huge state with a sizeable Muslim population that is hardly, if ever, brought together for one event. I hope that this event changes how not only our elected officials think of Ramadan but also how our statewide community thinks of coming together with their Muslim family in other towns and cities.”  

CAIR’s mission is to protect civil rights, enhance understanding of Islam, promote justice, and empower American Muslims.     

La misión de CAIR es proteger las libertades civiles, mejorar la comprensión del Islam, promover la justicia, y empoderar a los musulmanes en los Estados Unidos.
