I have worked in the social services sector for more than 15 years and have rarely encountered an organization that is as effective as CAIR-MN at bringing the highest quality legal and advocacy services to some of the most vulnerable populations of people in our communities.

There has been a tremendous growth of CAIR-MN’s name and reputation in the community since its founding. Each year, CAIR-MN appears over 115 times in local newsmedia. CAIR-MN was named a 2010 “Difference Maker” by the St. Cloud Times, received the 2011 Nonprofit Mission and Excellence Anti-Racism Award from the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits and MAP for Nonprofits, named the 2012 CAIR Chapter of the Year, selected for Minnesota Philanthropy Partners’ 2013 "Nonprofits to Know," and featured in the Rochester Diversity Council “What Works.” Recently, CAIR-MN received the 2013 Difference Makers Award from the American Bar Association’s Solo, Small Firm and General Practice Division for “making a difference through pro bono work.”

CAIR is a spectacular nonprofit organization with staff, interns and volunteers that are truly passionate and dedicated to what they do. CAIR as a whole is a "community connecter" that works tirelessly to give voice to people, bridge cultural differences, protect and strengthen civil liberties for all Americans.

If find their attitudes to be exceptionally offensive. Their beliefs and views expressing their supremacy are a personal affront to those of us who are devout Christians.

I am the Executive Director of another non profit in Mpls. with similar goals as CAIR-MN. We have found the current Director and Development person ready to cooperate and work together with those outside of their immediate community. Their education to employers and support/advocacy of individuals about their rights is invaluable to our community. In the past staff from CAIR-MN offered training to local families who were about to host civilian visitors from Iraq. She taught us about prayer times, dietetic issues, cats and dogs and other things that helped us feel more relaxed hosting out guests. We look forward to ongoing cooperation working to improve living conditions and community health here in MN.

As a civil rights advocate, it has been the most amazing and rewording experience working with CAIR-MN. The cases I work on make a difference in people's lives and the trainings I conduct help create and foster tolerance and understanding among members in the community. It is empowering to stand up and defend the rights of those whose rights have been violated because of hate, discrimination, or out of pure ignorance of the law or religious beliefs of others.

CAIR-MN functions on a basic premise: that everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. The individual stories and accomplishments that come from our office are extremely fulfilling — the 300 employees who were granted their legal rights in the workplace after CAIR-MN intervened on their behalf; the student who was allowed to make up a college exam she missed for a religious holiday; the high school students who were able to put an end to daily harassment; the woman who was hired after initially being told to remove her religious headscarf in order to continue with her job interview; or the warehouse employees who were allowed to speak their native language during their breaks.

Right now American Muslims are going through challenging times. In our nation’s history, we have seen other minority groups treated the same way — and it could be a new group in the future. So we’re not just advocating for Minnesota Muslims, we’re protecting the rights that many Americans have sacrificed their lives for.

There has been tremendous growth of CAIR-MN’s name and reputation in the community since it was created in 2007. In 2010, CAIR-MN appeared over 115 times in local and national newsmedia. Also in 2010, CAIR-MN was named a “Difference Maker” by the St. Cloud Times. Last year, CAIR-MN was awarded the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits’ Mission & Excellence Anti-Racism Award.
