Working at CAIR has been a wonderful experience, the staff welcomed me and I began to learn so much about the great activism CAIR completes and about the Muslim community as a whole. The staff here are constantly working hard for the rights of all people in the community and hoping to educate everyone they meet. They are always welcoming and passionately committed to helping all those in our community.
As a community leader in Mankato Minnesota, I call on CAIR every time there is a Civil Rights discrimination case in my community and I have never been disappointed, either CAIR provided consultation on how to approach the issue, or they provide free legal representation to right the social wrongs of our community. We definitely need a CAIR branch office in Mankato to access the service locally. Keep up the good work.
When I first worked with CAIR-MN, I thought it would be just another job. I did not realize how very active CAIR-MN is active in the community, the Twin Cities, and even all around the state. Plus, I felt like I was home. Great staff, terrific leadership, and I hope much success to come under the new Executive Director.
So happy to know this nonprofit and service exists, paving the way for practical action in the way of civil rights and making it easier for all communities of people to live freely as they have a right to.
I have been working with CAIR-MN as a Designer for three months now. In my time here, I have come to learn that they are so many things to the community: an affordable legal service so everyone has access to a lawyer; a source of valuable information that everyone (really, everyone!) can benefit from and utilize; an advocate and supporter to people who felt like they had no one on their side; and a huge help to the community itself, by providing positions and internships for young people to get involved in civil advocacy in a meaningful way. I personally feel very close to my work for CAIR-MN. I've had the opportunity to watch true civil advocates in action, while creating work that I'm proud of.
Year in and year out CAIR is recognized for its efforts to help protect civil liberties here in Minnesota. This can only be attributed to the tireless efforts of those that volunteer and work at CAIR. They work to protect and defend the constitutional rights of American Muslims, thereby supporting the rights of all Americans.
I have been working with CAIR MN as an events coordinator intern for three months now. The ground that CAIR MN has covered in such a short time is really amazing. The best thing is that it allows everyone a platform to have a voice, helps in bridging cultural differences and stand up for the rights of those who are unable to do themselves.
The success stories of CAIR MN really speaks for itself and I feel very fortunate to be a part of CAIR MN.
This is a fantastic organization that does important work in our community to protect and strengthen civil rights! Sincerely, A non-Muslim in his right mind.
There are many negative feedback entered here.
All the bad reviews were entered by right wing extremists coming to this page from a hate website called Bare Naked Islam. This website is hosted in Israel to promote hatred of muslims and Islam so that the Western world can be duped to engage in a war with the islamic world. These people promote genocide of muslims so that Jews can reclaim all land mentioned in Bible and rebuild the Temple Mount by destroying the dome of the Rock. Yet they call themselves as followers of the most peacefull religion in the world: Christianity.
Kudos to CAIR for all the good work they do. Please continue to support CAIR and if you wish to learn more about those right wing fanatics, check the following page:
CAIR MN is a great organization that is really working to create more understanding regarding Islam and to protect the rights of people in diverse communities. The people working here are all very friendly and knowledgeable, and I hope to volunteer with them again.
I have worked with CAIR-MN for almost a year now. One of my projects was to interview staff, board members, clients and other supporters to see what CAIR-MN means to them. I was truly inspired by the stories of these remarkable people who all have a personal tie to CAIR-MN and an immense passion for the work that CAIR-MN does. To hear each personal story, and each unique way that these lives have been effected by CAIR-MN proved to me even more the importance, depth, and validity of this work. I got to hear, time and time again how CAIR-MN is making a difference, not only in individual lives but in communities. Furthermore, what makes me such a strong supporter of CAIR-MN is their strategy of empowerment and education and their passion for justice and equality for all people.
