CAIR-Florida Is Counting On You! #LetsStickTogether In Ramadan 2020

We are making a sincere call for your support, as it is needed now more than ever! We have a current goal of $500,000 so we can uninterruptedly continue our operations of serving and protecting you.

Farther Apart But In This Together: Working to Protect Our Community

With the emergence of COVID-19, this Ramadan will look and feel significantly different and somewhat challenging for all of us.  As we collectively learn to navigate through these changes, we want you to know that one thing has not changed –  our work.

 

 

#CAIRFloridaAPPEARsforyou

The need for our services has in fact increased during this global pandemic and our operations have continued uninterruptedly. Your contribution will allow us to APPEAR for you.

 

A: Advocate, via pro-bono legal representation

P: Prevent discrimination by educating those in positions of power

P: Protect, by teaching how to protect oneself through Know Your Rights

E: Empower communities to take action and change unjust systems

A: Activate  individuals to fulfill their civic duties

R: Represent the Muslim-American community by challenging stereotypes.

 

 Your Support Will Help Us:

1. Maintain our Virtual Offices and IT Environment during the COVID19 pandemic.

2. Continue providing our Know Your Rights Training series to hundreds of students, employees, and travelers. 

3. Continue our outreach and strong presence in local, national, and international media outlets.

4. Continue to provide voter registration drives, voter education,  and  #GetOutTheVote #GOTV campaigns. 

5. Keep assisting and legally representing all Florida residents in our communities on civil rights and immigration matters.  This includes around 25% of our legal clients that are our non-Muslim neighbors!

6. Continue to provide training to our State and local law enforcement agencies. 

7. Continue answering calls from mothers whose children are being cyber-bullied during these COVID-19 pandemic times. 

9. Continue to provide free and immediate legal representation for individuals being visited and/or harassed by CBP, USCIS, FBI or other federal law enforcement agencies.

10. Continue our production of videos, printed materials,  and social media content.
