Unite Humanity Campaign Overview

In response to the work of Islamophobes and others to divide our communities along racial, religious and ethnic lines, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has developed this initiative to show, through positive action, that our collective national ideals of valuing diversity and uplifting our communities are more powerful than the voices calling for division. 

The objective of CAIR’s Unite Humanity campaign is to facilitate and raise awareness of interfaith and/or community-based partnerships between groups representing diverse beliefs and backgrounds by highlighting the service projects they are doing together.  This will be primarily accomplished through a community calendar, a social media campaign, and a series of services CAIR will offer to help connect groups doing community service with each other and the media. Though this, we hope to increase public awareness of Muslims and their community partners and to assist communities in organizing and launching cooperative public service projects.

By bringing community partners together to overcome negative narratives, this campaign will help provide an alternative and collective voice rooted in service, showing that our communities are more united now than ever before.

Join the nation's largest Muslim civil rights organization


What does CAIR do for the Muslim Community?


As-salaamu 'alaikum and Ramadan Kareem to you and your family,

Have you ever felt that our community is misunderstood or misrepresented and wished you could do something about it?

Your first step is being informed.

Please join our email list for regular updates on issues that impact the American Muslim community and for action alerts that allow you to help make a difference in just 30 seconds. (If you later decide you'd rather not get our messages, you can unsubscribe at any time.)


Since our founding in 1994, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has worked tirelessly to provide a Muslim voice on local and national issues and to empower American Muslims. Today, CAIR is the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, with chapters in 20 states across the country.

Every day, we work to defend the rights of American Muslims who are facing discrimination and to enhance understanding of Islam so that the misconceptions and prejudice that lead to discrimination decrease.

Here are the main ways we do this work:

  • Civil rights cases: Every year, CAIR attorneys and civil rights staff help thousands of American Muslims with cases of discrimination in the workplace, in schools, at airports, and with government agencies.

  • Communications: To address public misconceptions about Islam and Muslims, CAIR representatives regularly appear on or are quoted in local, national and international media outlets. CAIR produces public service announcements to help our fellow Americans understand Islam and the American Muslim experience.

  • Educational programs: CAIR has carried out educational campaigns to enhance the public's understanding of Islam and American Muslims, including our "Explore the Quran" campaign that distributes free copies of the Quran to people of other faiths, our library project that provided materials on Islam to more than half of all US public libraries, and our media education initiative that distributed our Journalist's Guide to Understanding Islam and Muslims to tens of thousands of media professionals.

  • Political advocacy: We advocate for justice in U.S. policies by engaging local, state and federal officials on a variety of important policy questions.

  • Youth empowerment: Through our popular Muslim Youth Leadership Program, CAIR prepares future leaders of the American Muslim community in the fields of media, law, government, public relations, philanthropy, and other spheres in which American Muslims are underrepresented.
