Education – Our Know Your Rights Workshops empower the Muslim community by educating them about legal issues and their legal rights and responsibilities as American Muslims.

We work to educate the public and public officials on issues that impact the Muslim community. We organize conferences and training seminars for businesses, government and law enforcement agencies, media professionals and the academic community to highlight relevant Islamic practices and to discuss community issues. We also provide sensitivity and diversity training workshops to employers, educators and organizations.

Outreach & Volunteerism – We develop outreach activities with interfaith groups and organizations and work on joint community service projects that build a sense of community and friendship

We work tirelessly to protect and defend the constitutional rights of American Muslims, thereby supporting the rights of all Americans.  Our experienced attorneys provide free or low-cost legal representation for Muslims, and those perceived to be Muslim, who have experienced religious discrimination.  We frequently take cases involving employment discrimination, public accommodation, racial or ethnic profiling, hate crimes, and interaction with FBI and/or law enforcement agencies.

Update on CAIR Lawsuit on Muslim Ban 3.0 – Request for Preliminary Injunction Granted

GOOD NEWS ALERT: WE WON!
We filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court of Maryland on behalf six individuals affected by Muslim Ban 3.0, including two Columbus plaintiffs of Syrian origin, to stop the implementation of President Trump’s Muslim Ban 3.0. Last night’s ruling from the District Court in Maryland means that our Plaintiffs and citizens of these six Muslim majority nations can be reunited with their families.

Last night’s Maryland decision joins Hawaii in blocking the new Muslim Ban from going into effect against citizens of six Muslim majority nations. This is the third version of President Trump’s Muslim Ban since January 2017 and was supposed to go into effect on October 18, 2017 at 12:01 a.m. EST. More
