The group will be calling on elected officials to keep every American safe, especially after recent spikes in hate incidents and crimes. A letter from a South Florida resident who has lost multiple family members after recent bombings in Gaza will be read.

WHAT: CAIR-FL United Front Press Conference Featuring Multifaith Leaders & Activists

WHEN:   Thursday, October 26 at 12:00 p.m.

CAIR-Florida’s #EveryAmericanSafe campaign brings to light not every American is being kept safe by our government. From young Palestinian and Muslim Americans being attacked on campus, to American citizens being trapped, and families being massacred in Gaza.

In a statement, CAIR-Florida Executive Director, Imam Abdullah Jaber, said:

“Americans of all faiths are deeply concerned for the lack of attention and action from our government officials and educational institutions to protect and keep every American safe, home and abroad.”  

Imam Abdullah added: We are horrified to hear our governor equating Florida student activists to terrorists in recent statements instead of pleading for their safety and making sure that every American is safe everywhere in Florida.”

Multifaith Representatives & Organizations:

  • Samir Kakli, South Florida Muslim Federation – President
  • Corey Shearer, Emgage – Outreach Specialist
  • Reverend Rhonda Thomas, Faith in Florida – Executive Director
  • Donna Nevel, Jewish Voice for Peace: South Florida – Activist

CAIR-Florida mission is to protect civil rights, enhance understanding of Islam, promote justice, and empower American Muslims.

La misión de CAIR-Florida es proteger las libertades civiles, mejorar la comprensión del Islam, promover la justicia, y empoderar a los musulmanes en los Estados Unidos.
