The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a federation of legally independent, governed and managed chapters across the country that work together to defend the Civil Liberties of Americans. CAIR National is the founding organization and has its own Board of Directors, as do each of the chapters across the country. All of the CAIR chapters board members, employees and volunteers represent the diversity of the American Muslim community.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations Florida, Inc. (CAIR Florida, Inc.), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was established in 2001 to challenge stereotypes of Islam and Muslims and defend civil liberties.  CAIR Florida Inc, has four offices: Tampa, South-Florida (Sunrise), Orlando, and Panama City, Florida.

The vast majority of CAIR Florida's work deals with civil rights and anti-defamation. CAIR Florida has consistently won praise from elected officials and the media for its tenacious efforts to combat both discrimination against Muslims and Islamphobia.

CAIR Florida's vision is to be a leading advocate for justice and mutual understanding.
 
CAIR Florida's mission is to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
