HOW CAIR’S SOCIAL JUSTICE BOOK CLUB WORKS:
In the first week of every month, book club members will be assigned a book pertaining to social and racial justice issues. Members will receive and be invited to share quotes in a closed discussion group throughout the month. During the last week of every month, CAIR will plan a facilitated virtual discussion – sometimes featuring special guest speakers – to unpack themes, ideas and context in the book and pave the way for practically applying anti-racist behaviors and language in our daily lives.
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.
