My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for CAIR-Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA
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.
