TEHRAN (IQNA) – On Wednesday, August 16, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) will hold a “Know Your Rights and Responsibilities’ workshop at one of the largest mosques in Virginia.

CAIR to Offer ‘Know Your Rights’ Workshop at Virginia Mosque


CAIR’s free workshop, to be conducted by CAIR Senior Litigation Attorney Gadeir Abbas at Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Va., will cover issues such as an individual’s rights when interacting with law enforcement or the FBI, religious rights in the workplace, the rights of Muslim students, and the rights of Muslim travelers – with a special focus on the issue of "watchlisting.”

CAIR recently launched an app to share critical "know your rights” information and to simplify the process to report hate crimes and bias incidents. CAIR is urging American Muslims and members of other minority groups to download the app and utilize this resource to stay informed and empowered.

CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
