CAIR-NY’s mission is to enhance understanding of Islam, protect civil rights, promote justice, and empower American Muslims.
As America’s premier Muslim civil rights group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations has worked for more than 25 years to defend the constitution. The New York chapter is one of the busiest and most dynamic of CAIR’s thirty-five nationwide affiliates, defending, representing, and educating the nearly one million Muslims in New York. CAIR-NY serves New Yorkers through legal advocacy, education, media relations, civic engagement, and grassroots mobilization. As a first line of defense, CAIR-NY protects New Yorkers who have experienced discrimination, harassment, hate crimes, and more. We combat Islamophobia and systemic discrimination in all its forms.
