Dear CAIR-SD Supporter,
CAIR San Diego unequivocally stands with the people of Gaza, advocates for an immediate #ceasefire, and demands urgent humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza. To mobilize forces and increase impact, CAIR-SD has partnered with many like-minded organizations and formed the San Diego For Palestine Coalition. As a civil rights organization, CAIR-SD leads community meetings with elected officials at all levels and law enforcement agencies to demand equitable statements to support Arab, Muslim and Palestinian community members in San Diego. We also have been demanding our national representatives to sign on HR 786 demanding Cease fire now.
While there are thousands of individuals who are dying in Gaza everyday, the effect of this genocide is devastating statewide as well. In the wake of October 7th, our office has received over 25 reports of hate crimes and incidents. These complaints span from bullying and harassment on school campuses, harassment of Palestinian and Muslim owned businesses and employment discrimination cases across San Diego. Our community outreach and civil rights team have been conducting Anti-Bullying, Know Your Rights, and Advocacy workshops along with Teach Ins to prepare the community.
We support fellow organizations and activists who are peacefully demonstrating their support for Palestinians. During these melancholic times, CAIR San Diego will utilize our strength to advocate for social justice whether it is at a board meeting, on a legislative level, or on the streets. We are here to defend marginalized groups to ensure their civil rights are being fulfilled. However, to continue this work we need your help. Our goal is to raise $100,000 in order to increase our legal and civil rights department. We are counting on the San Diego community to aid us in our fight for social justice. As #GivingTuesday will be held on November 28th, we ask for your generous contribution, so we are properly equipped to take on the increase of cases happening in the community.
