(MIAMI, FL, 12/22/17) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations - Florida (CAIR - FL), the state's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization, today calls on Palm Beach County law enforcement agencies and the State Attorney's office to apprehend and press criminal charges against those responsible for yesterday's brutal group beating of a Boca Raton female Muslim teenager.
This comes after a Facebook video  that was posted by the parent of the battered teenager showing a gang-style beating by three females.

"CAIR-Florida receives numerous complaints of school bullying incidents and serious assaults against Muslim youth at a constantly increasing rate. We have reached out to the victim's family and will ensure that this serious issue is addressed swiftly and appropriately by local officials," said Omar Saleh, CAIR-Florida Civil Rights counsel.

CAIR-Florida is the state's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties of all people, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.

La misión de CAIR-Florida es mejorar la comprensión del Islam, fomentar el diálogo, proteger las libertades civiles, capacitar a los musulmanes estadounidenses, y construir coaliciones que promuevan la justicia y la comprensión mutua.
