They have a pattern of discriminating and mistreating their own employees, especially women. Donor funds are directly going to pay for attorneys to suppress, silence, and intimidate those who have been treated unjustly.
Chapters are very capable of standing up for justice, but they look the other way and do nothing when their national leaders are the perpetrators of injustice.
This organization encourages open discussion regarding Islam and our global and local community. This is very important especially with how the media is shaping our perception of Muslims the past 30 years. I encourage everyone to really research what Islam is and what it means. You may be surprised to find out it is a religion stemming from Christianity. Muslims believe Jesus was indeed a prophet, however, they believe Muhammad was the "next" prophet. Rather than clicking on a link that doesn't tell you much about anything please research this religion and its meaning. I am not a Muslim but I think it is important to stay open-minded and to remember that all people have the ability to be bad and good. Thank you Council on American-Islamic Relations, Inc., for providing us with the resources to understand things more in depth, keeping the conversation open and encouraging us to increase our cognitive power.
