(WASHINGTON, D.C., 1/14/14) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today announced that its recent report, “Legislating Fear: Islamophobia and its Impact in the United States,” is now available for Kindle.
CAIR's report reveals that anti-Islam groups received more than $119 million in funding between 2008 and 2011. Due to its popularity, almost all of the 3,000 hardcopies of the report have been distributed.
The report also identifies 37 organizations dedicated to promoting anti-Islam prejudice in America and reveals to the reader the impact those groups have on our nation's discourse about Islam, pluralism and the future of the protections enshrined in the U.S. Constitution.
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.
