Ramadan Mubarak!

Empower our Muslim community to reinforce their rights!

As-salamu alaikum and Ramadan Mubarak!

A BIG THANK YOU! Your constant support has empowered CAIR-Philadelphia and our staff to stay focused during Ramadan and throughout the year.

Because of you, we’re building a hate-free America with every case. When you donate to CAIR-Philadelphia, you support our efforts to defend civil rights and empower Muslims in the greater Delaware Valley.

In 2021, our office observed a spike in reports of hate crimes, bias incidents, and discrimination within public accommodations. We routinely represented individuals who experienced humiliating harassment and discrimination in public settings. For example, one of our clients who endured a vile hate crime in the parking lot of a local shopping center retained our office for representation against her attacker when local authorities delayed holding the individual accountable. CAIR-Philadelphia worked closely with local authorities who apprehended and prosecuted the individual appropriately.

We are also repeating our Ramadan accommodation advocacy this year for students and employees. If you or someone you know needs a Ramadan accommodation letter for a school or workplace, please contact us and our education and legal teams will assist.

These efforts are only possible because of your belief in our mission! Your donations create an impact in the lives of our clients and communities. This Ramadan, we want to remind you that your ongoing support encourages us. So, will you please join your communities across the state in supporting our vision with a tangible gift at the highest level possible?

Stand tall with us in promoting justice and mutual understanding. Strong supporters like you empower us to protect and defend our communities across greater Philadelphia. Your gift, whatever it is, is powering CAIR-Philadelphia in body and spirit as we push ahead, making history and impacting our state for good, insha’Allah.

Your support and your expression of care means a lot to each of us at CAIR-Philadelphia personally. May you achieve heavenly peace and guidance this Ramadan!

In gratitude,

Ahmet Selim Tekelioglu, PhD., CAIR-Philadelphia Outreach and Education Director
