CAIR MN has done very beneficial work for the community. They have helped to organize many events that teach and train the Muslim community to work with the system and be an citizen that works to build and nurture the greater community. The board is a very professional board and the employees are very skilled and qualified group. I am extremely impressed by their work and their team.
The people who run CAIR MN are upcoming leaders who work very hard to lead Muslims in Minnesota to work with the system to deal with civil rights issues and discrimination.
Many good-hearted people bemoan the deterioration of relations between Muslims and non-Muslims since 9/11, but CAIR MN is actually doing the hard work of repairing the relationship. Through their work on various projects and organizations, their leadership reached out to mainstream institutions and donated their time and money to
constructively enhance Muslims and people of other faiths to work together. Through their leadership, I have seen many Muslim youth now lead in opening other organizations as well as leading
projects to contribute to a better Minnesota.
I was invited to many such forums and was impressed by the level of
organization, hard work and professionalism within the meetings. We recently had a forum with Law Enforcement and it was amazing to see many Muslim and Somali leaders address their concerns to Law Enforcement officials to understand how to secure our country as well as protect our civil rights. Such meetings in the political climate are very hard to arrange and facilitate.
An amazing group of young people making a huge difference and making America and MN a better place for everyone.
These are the new Rosa Parks and new MLKs, & other amazing figures who stood up to bigotry, challenged racism and made America better.
Kudos to the volunteers and staff for standing up for Equality and LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.
This is what America is all about.
CAIR-Minnesota is a dynamic non-profit organization that works on ensuring the civil rights of Muslims throughout the state. It provides a voice to so many people that don't know what to do when they experience discrimination. It also provides excellent training so employers and others can better understand the Islamic religion and how it relates to employment.
