MEDIA ADVISORY

CAIR to Release Report Showing ‘Concrete Evidence’ That Trump’s Muslim Ban Resulted in Islamophobic Discrimination, Violence

(SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ, 4/18/2018) – On Monday, April 23, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, will release a one-of-its-kind report showing “concrete evidence” that the Trump’s administration’s Muslim Ban resulted in increased anti-Muslim discrimination and violence nationwide in the past year.

CAIR’s 2018 civil rights report will outline hundreds of anti-Muslim bias incidents in 2017 and indicate how many were related to the Trump administration’s unconstitutional Muslim Ban executive orders. The new report, titled “Targeted,” will also document the increase in anti-Muslim bias incidents and hate crimes in 2017 over the previous year.

WHAT: CAIR New Jersey News Conference to Release 2018 Civil Rights Report

WHEN: Monday, April 23, 11 a.m.

WHERE: CAIR New Jersey’s Headquarters, 4475 S. Clinton Ave, South Plainfield, Suite 202, NJ 07080

“This administration’s targeting of the American Muslim community and of other minority communities is very clear and should shock the conscience of all Americans,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad.

He said the anti-Muslim hate incidents documented in CAIR’s report are an indictment of the Trump administration’s unconstitutional policies.

CAIR said it has witnessed an unprecedented spike in bigotry targeting American Muslims and members of other minority groups since the election of Donald Trump as president.

New Jersey community members are being urged to report any bias incidents to police and to CAIR New Jersey’s Civil Rights Department at 908-668-5900 or by filing a report at: http://nj.cair.com/your-rights/report-an-incident.html

CAIR-NJ Condemns Racist Vandalism Targeting Campaign Poster in Newark

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CAIR-NJ Condemns Racist Vandalism Targeting Campaign Poster in Newark

 (SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ, 4/2/2018) -- The New Jersey chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NJ), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today condemned the racist vandalism of a campaign poster for Newark At-Large Councilman Luis Quintana. 

The poster, which hangs about a block away from the Councilman’s office, was defaced with a Nazi swastika painted over a picture of the councilman’s face.  

Newark Police are investigating the defaced campaign banner as a bias crime and released photos of a suspect wearing a hooded sweatshirt. The bias-motivated crime was apparently committed on Thursday. 

"The hate symbolized by this act of vandalism has no place in New Jersey and cannot be tolerated,” said James Sues, executive director of CAIR-NJ. “This painful reminder of the extreme divisiveness that characterizes the current political climate at the national level should prompt us to remain vigilant in investigating and prosecuting hate crimes as they occur.”
