(ANAHEIM, CA, 6/02/16– The California Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-CA) today announced the release of a proposition guide for the June 7thCalifornia Primary election.
In 2012 and 2014 CAIR-CA distributed Voter Guides which contained a Congressional scorecard, State Legislative scorecard, and a proposition guide. CAIR-CA will distribute the 2016 Voter Guide in the weeks leading up to the election.
“The Voter Guides are part of the broader effort to educate, register and mobilize Muslim voters of California,” said CAIR-LA Public Affairs Manager Haroon Manjlai.
“The Muslim community of California feels offended by certain political candidates who have used divisive rhetoric and demonized our entire community,” said Sameena Usman, Government Relations Consultant for CAIR-SFBA. “CAIR-CA is working tirelessly to increase Muslim voter turnout so that these and future candidates understand that the Muslim community has a high voter turnout rate, and that this community will use the power of the vote to send a clear message.”
CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
