Civil rights advocacy remains at the center of CAIR’s work. CAIR has served more than 25,000 victims of discrimination since its founding. Our California offices receive a total of approximately 800 inquiries a year and work to resolve them through mediation, negotiation, public pressure or, if necessary, through legal action. Our civil rights services are provided free of charge to the community.
Our new immigrants’ rights program now offers high-quality, low-cost or pro bono services to individuals otherwise unable to obtain legal assistance. We seek to assist individuals who seek asylum, legal permanent residency, citizenship, or reunification with their families as well as victims of human trafficking, serious crimes, and domestic violence.
