Coffee that CAIRs
The New York Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations has protected and defended the constitutional rights of Muslim New Yorkers for nearly twenty years. We serve the nearly one million Muslims in New York State, working on the front lines of advocacy, education, and litigation. In these trying times, CAIR-NY needs your support more than ever. We're asking businesses across New York state to come together on March 15th to raise money for our efforts against bigotry, Islamophobia, religious registries, and travel bans.
HOW IT WORKS
Participating businesses agree to raise funds for CAIR-NY on March 15th. Any method is fine, an extra jar on the counter, some percentage of sale proceeds, or anything else. The point is to provide a space for people to support CAIR-NY. At the end of the day, participating cafes make a tax-free donation to CAIR-NY.
WHAT IT'S FOR
CAIR-NY uses donations to provide direct legal services, impact litigation, and know your rights workshops. Our lawyers are in New York's Muslim communities every day, helping the victims of harassment, discrimination, and hate crimes.
We'll be publicizing the event widely on our social media channels, along with information on which coffee shops are participating. Our outreach team will provide you with promo materials.
BUT I don't run a cafe...
We are actively looking for matching sponsors. If you operate any kind of coffee-related business: machine producer, barista training, roasting, supplying, etc., please use the form to below to contact us. You can also donate to CAIR-NY directly using the button at the top-right of the screen, if you'd rather get right to it.
Don't live or work near a participating location? You can make an individual donation in honor of "Coffee that CAIRs." on our donation page.
