End Discriminatory Policing

CAIR–NY actively fights the NYPD's discriminatory investigations of the Muslim community.  We worked to end the department's unconstitutional "Demographics Unit," and we remain a vocal opponent of the NYPD Intelligence Bureau's sweeping surveillance of law-abiding members of the Muslim community.


Combating Bullying

CAIR–NY is working to counter the alarming increase in anti-Muslim bullying.  We work to prevent, identify, and respond to these heartbreaking experiences.

Combating Islamophobia

CAIR–NY is a vocal opponent of those who seek to spread hatred and lies about the Muslim Community.  CAIR–NY believes Islamophobia in the United States is a contemporary manifestation of the prejudice that has plagued our nation since its earliest days.  Please contact us if you have witnessed Islamophobia.
