CAIR 2017 CIVIL RIGHTS REPORT: THE EMPOWERMENT OF HATE
CAIR’s new report, titled “The Empowerment of Hate” is a collection of data regarding hate crimes and other cases from all of the CAIR chapters nationwide. The report details a more than 50 percent increase in anti-Muslim bias incidents in 2016 over the previous year. The report directly addresses many issues currently affecting the civil rights of American Muslims across the country, including Ohio. It also outlines how the increase in anti-Muslim bias incidents has been accompanied by a similar spike in anti-Muslim hate crimes during the same period. [NOTE: The report focuses primarily on 2016, but also contains data on cases documented by CAIR during the 2014-2016 period.]

2016: CONFRONTING FEAR
According to “Confronting Fear,” released by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Center for Race and Gender at UC Berkeley, 33 Islamophobic groups had access to at least $205 million in total revenue between 2008-2013.
In addition to documenting funding of Islamophobic groups, the report presents a four-point strategy designed to achieve a shared American understanding of Islam in which being Muslim carries a positive connotation, and in which Islam has an equal place among the many faiths that together constitute America’s pluralistic society.
