CAIR-TX, DFW Chapter is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-deductible grassroots advocacy and civil rights organization.
CAIR-TX, DFW Chapter was formed in 1998 and since then, we have made a positive impact on the local community, with dozens of stories and consistent coverage in all local mainstream media outlets. CAIR-TX, DFW Chapter representatives regularly appear on local news and media outlets.
The national headquarters for CAIR is in Washington, D.C. and there are over 20 affiliated CAIR chapters across America. CAIR was established to promote a accurate image of Islam and Muslims in America. We believe that misrepresentations of Islam today are most often the result of ignorance on the part of non-Muslims and reluctance on the part of Muslims to clearly articulate our beliefs.
As a leading voice for the DFW Muslim Community, we strive to maintain the highest ethical standards in all of our endeavors. In our work towards portraying an accurate image of Islam in America, we offer diverse training presentations, workshops and seminars to empower and motivate the American Muslim community to participate effectively in political, social and civic activism.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations, DFW Chapter is dedicated to presenting an Islamic perspective on issues of importance to the American public. In offering that perspective, we seek to empower the Muslim community in America through political and social activism.
