Three women protesting Muslim Ban

CAIR’s newly released “Islamophobia in the Mainstream” report shows that Islamophobic organizations remain active and continue to receive large sums of money through private family foundations and mainstream donor-advised funds that are ultimately used to spread misinformation and perpetuate harmful stereotypes about Muslims and Islam.

Here are some key findings in the report:

1. Funding Anti-Muslim Hatred

35 charitable institutions funneled almost $106 million to 26 anti-Muslim groups between 2017 and 2019.

2. Bullying Against Muslim Students

Students continue to face physical and verbal abuse for being Muslim and do not feel comfortable expressing their Muslim identity and engaging in classroom discussions about Muslims and Islam.

3. Anti-Mosque Incidents

CAIR identified 16 anti-mosque incidents between 2019-2020, including incidents of damage, destruction, and vandalism, intimidation, and harassment.

4. Anti-Muslim Hatred on Social Media

Between 2019-2020, CAIR identified 40 instances where institutional leaders shared or posted anti-Muslim content online.

5. Politics and Anti-Muslim Rhetoric

Individuals with a history of anti-Muslim rhetoric were appointed to serve in government during the Trump-era, prompting the administration to push anti-Muslim policies.
