As a civil rights advocacy non-profit, CAIR-SFBA is tasked with striving to protect and uphold our Constitutional rights. Though the size of our task is large, our resources are not. Because of this, we rely heavily on volunteers and interns to help make our goals a reality. If you are interested in helping out with CAIR-SFBA’s work, we would more than welcome your participation and support.
