Dear CAIR-CA Members,

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you and the community for the past four years as CAIR-CA Chairman. On behalf of the staff and board of directors of the California chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-CA), please join me in congratulating the newly elected chair of the CAIR-CA board, Amana Siddiqi.

Amana is a small-business owner, with a long history of service to the American Muslim community. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Applied Ecology and her master’s degree in Environmental Health Science and Policy from the University of California, Irvine.

Amana served for three years as president of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) at Orange Crescent School and served four years on CAIR-LA’s governance board.

We look forward to her service and the continued growth we hope to see during Amana’s tenure. I will remain involved with CAIR-CA as a board member and will continue to support the work of the four offices of CAIR-CA. You can always reach me via email at ohassaine@cair.com.

If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions about CAIR-CA, Amana can be reached via email at asiddiqi@cair.com.


Omar Hassaine

CAIR-CA Chairman (2016-2020)
