CAIR-Florida Launches Know Your Rights Tour Aiming to Impact 100 Islamic Centers Statewide
 
(MIAMI, FL, 7/6/18) – The Florida Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Florida), the State’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today announced a statewide CAIR-Florida 2018-19 Know Your Rights Tour focusing on educating Muslims of all ages on their rights as voters, at school, at work, when traveling, and when being questioned by law enforcement officers.
 
The tour project came about as a direct response to the recent Supreme Court decision upholding the #MuslimBan and aims to impact at least 100 Islamic centers, schools, and institutions by December 2019. The kickoff training event will be on July 16th at 8:30 p.m. in the Islamic Center of Broward (ICB), Sunrise, Florida.
 
CAIR-Florida's Regional Operations Director, Nezar Hamze, recently stated, “We believe that education and empowerment will overcome this new challenge presented by the Muslim Ban. We will educate members of our Muslim communities state-wide about their civil and human rights and stand with them in the courtroom whenever their rights are violated. We will also explain their right to vote and mobilize them to GOTV (get out to vote). No more complaining - Only Voting!”
