All of the CAIR chapters' board members, employees and volunteers represent the diversity of the American Muslim community.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations Florida, Inc. (CAIR Florida, Inc.), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was established in 2001 to challenge stereotypes of Islam and Muslims and defend civil liberties.

The vast majority of CAIR Florida's work deals with civil rights and anti-defamation. CAIR Florida has consistently won praise from elected officials and the media for its tenacious efforts to combat both discrimination against Muslims and Islamophobia.

CAIR Florida's mission 
is to enhance understanding of Islam, protect civil rights, promote justice, and empower American Muslims.
