Please join CAIR Georgia on Feb. 18th, 2017, for our first major fundraising banquet!
Our special guest speakers will, God willing, include activist Linda Sarsour, civil rights attorney Hassan Shibly, and Nihad Awad, founder and executive director of CAIR National.
During the banquet, we hope to celebrate what CAIR Georgia accomplished in 2016 and raise enough funds to fulfill our goals for 2017, insha Allah.
Here's what CAIR Georgia accomplished, by the grace of God, in 2016:
Served Georgia Muslims by delivering free educational presentations, including Know Your Rights, Islamic Last Will & Testament, and Self-Defense seminars at various mosques, as well as Islam 101 presentations to Georgians of other faiths.
Protected Georgia Muslims by building coalitions with other civil rights groups and countering Islamophobia, including Newton County's failed attempt to block a masjid and a state legislator's withdrawn proposal to ban niqabs.
Advocated for Georgia Muslims by meeting with congressmen on Capitol Hill, delivering Islam 101 presentations to non-Muslim audiences, and conducting interviews with national and local media outlets.
United Georgia Muslims to co-host a memorial service for Muhammad Ali, a post-Orlando blood drive in solidarity with all victims of unjust violence, a post-election town hall, and an election rally with Olympian Ibtihaj Muhammad.
Our major goals for the year:
Here's how you can help us, God willing, achieve those goals:
We plan to host this special dinner starting at 6:00 pm at The Westin Hotel in Dunwoody, on Saturday, Feb. 18th, 2017. Join us to support CAIR Georgia, the only Muslim civil rights organization dedicated to fighting anti-Muslim discrimination in Georgia.
