“Know Your Rights” Workshop in Pottsville

On Saturday, July 11, 2015, Ryan Houldin, CAIR-Philadelphia Staff Attorney, presented a “Know Your Rights” (KYR) workshop at the Islamic Society of Schuylkill County; over 50 persons attended the workshop. Ryan addressed several common forms of discrimination that Muslims are likely to experience in this culture of Islamophobia, covering workplace discrimination, interactions with law enforcement, and bullying at school. KYR workshops are one of the many efforts by CAIR-Philadelphia to empower Muslim communities to fight back against pervasive discrimination and harassment.
