CAIR-California (LA, Sacramento, San Diego, SFBA)

Mission Statement

To enhance understanding of Islam, protect civil rights, promote justice, and empower American Muslims.

Impact and Programs

Accomplishments In 2018, CAIR-CA’s offices: hosted over 1,200 community outreach activities and conducted over 300 workshops and presentations; attended over 300 legislative meetings with local, state and national elected officials; conducted 400 media interviews; and handled more than 2,200 civil rights and immigration cases on behalf of Muslims whose civil liberties were violated or needed legal services. We also provided leadership training to over 40 youth at our annual Muslim Youth Leadership Program and mobilized more than 700 community members through our annual Muslim Day at the Capitol.
Current Goals CAIR-CA has not eradicated Islamophobia and understands this is a long-term goal which will require increasing capacity, streamlining infrastructure and developing programs. As much progress as we have made, there is still much work to be done in expanding civil rights resources and services, and influencing community and public policies. We value our community investment to protect civil liberties and promote justice and equality.
Community or Constituency Served CAIR-CA serves the largest and most diverse American Muslim communities in the nation. This diversity cuts across race, national origin, socioeconomic status, and educational attainment.
