Since the November 8th election, thousands of ordinary Americans have offered their support for CAIRâ€™s important civil rights and advocacy work. More than 3,000 people of all faiths and backgrounds have contacted CAIR asking to become volunteers. More than 4,000 individuals and foundations gave donations to CAIR.
Major media outlets also encouraged support for CAIR:
