People in positions of authority can take advantage of you if you are unclear on your rights. Don’t let this happen. Make sure you know your rights as an American.
It is particularly important for American-Muslims to know their rights due to discrimination that is facing the community today. Regardless of whether or not you have experienced discrimination or abuse of your rights, it is crucial to protect yourself by understanding your rights and the laws in the United States.
CAIR-Chicago’s Know Your Rights trainings help community members become better acquainted with their rights as employees, students, travelers and immigrants. If you are interested in this type of program, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request a “Know Your Rights” presentation at your mosque, place of worship or community center.
