CAIR-Oregon: Empowered. Muslims. Delivering social change.


Organization mission statement:

CAIR-Oregon believes that Muslims are an integral part of American society. We empower the Oregon Muslim community to be engaged citizens and protect the civil liberties of all American Muslims facing discrimination of any kind. CAIR Oregon advocates for Muslim civil rights in Oregon, working to hold those in power accountable, and implement legislative action to promote Civil Rights for the Oregon Muslim community and beyond.

An advertising campaign strategy and implementation focused on fundraising and outreach will allow us to advocate for Muslim civil liberties and to educate communities in Oregon about the causes and impacts of Islamophobia.

How is diversity, equity and inclusion relevant for your organization? *: CAIR-Oregon engages with members and representative of other faiths to educate them about the principles of Islam, help build mutual respect for religious choices and promote the value of working together to further civil rights and social justice for all Oregonians. CAIR-Oregon will also seek to proactively work with the community and partners on projects that encourage and increase interfaith harmony through speaking engagements, panels, seminars, and conferences.

We are a very small team of 5 in our new non-profit and in need of funding to continue our work building momentum within Oregon by expanding on our community forums, distributing Know Your Rights information to schools and Masjids, as well as participate in civic engagement events. An advertising campaign, billboards, or a promotional video for CAIR-Oregon focused on fundraising and outreach will play a critical role in allowing us to be an advocate for Muslim civil liberties and to educate communities in the whole state of Oregon about the causes and impacts of Islamophobia.
