Rise Up Ramadan 2019: Start This Ramadan Joining Our Fight Against Injustice

Assalamu Aleikum and Ramadan Kareem!
 
We pray that this letter finds you in good spirits and good health.
Last year was an extremely challenging year for Muslims, Muslimas, immigrants, and our country. The CAIR-Florida team worked tirelessly to fight the injustice of: immigration bans; school bullying; employment discrimination; discrimination within the criminal justice system; and threats to the safety and security of our mosques and Islamic centers. In addition, calls for help from victims of harassment and hate crimes continue to pour in at an alarming rate.
 
Now more than ever, CAIR-Florida is needed to respond to the amplified hate of 2018 that continues to send shockwaves through our society. That is why, in 2019, we are focusing on increasing awareness of everyone’s civil and human rights through: our Know Your Rights Tour; our Mosque safety and security trainings; and by working with law enforcement to ensure officers better know how to serve and protect the Muslim community. CAIR Florida’s mission is accomplished through integrated programs of legal representation and widespread education.
 
CAIR-Florida would not be able to pursue our Mission …to enhance the understanding of Islam, protect civil rights, promote justice, and empower American Muslims without the help of donors like you. We hope that you will continue to support us throughout the year as we endeavor to better serve the growing Florida Muslim population, inshaAllah.
 
Ramadan is the fitting time to draw closer to our Creator and work for our eternal home in the hereafter. After our prayers and fasting, what better way is there to do just that than to give generously in charity to support and defend those who face oppression for practicing our beautiful faith. Please consider matching or, if you are able, exceeding your previous Ramadan gift to CAIR-Florida.
 
During this blessed month of Ramadan, we ask that you continue to help us provide increased safety and civil rights advocacy efforts. Your continuing financial assistance will enable us to stand strong to represent and safeguard our faith and community during these difficult times.  
JazakumAllah khairan and may Allah’s (swt) blessings be upon you and your family.
