ORIGINAL TITLE: Serving you in Ramadan
CAIR-CAN to speak at four national and international conferences during Ramadan
A significant part of CAIR-CAN’s work is outreach and education. Oftentimes, this dimension of our work goes unreported.
The following speaking engagements are meant to give you a sampling of how CAIR-CAN is representing your voice. CAIR-CAN will be speaking on issues of national security, multiculturalism, the policing of immigration, and issues of faith and the media.
We need your support to continue this work. Please remember us this month in your du’aa, and in your sadaqat and zakat donations. For information on how to donate, please click here.
