CAIR-Chicago launches its Second Annual Ramadan Outreach Program
October 5, 2006
As a chapter of the largest Muslim Civil Rights organization in the United States, it is our duty to empower our local constituents with services that protect their rights in the case of religious discrimination, biased media reporting, problems in attaining citizenship status...etc. It is also our duty to make our local constituents aware of these services.
One approach is through our Ramadan Outreach Program, which consists of a series of mini-presentations on CAIR-Chicago and the free services we provide to Muslims in Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana. These presentations are given by Executive Director, Ahmed Rehab, during Taraweeh prayer at various mosques in the midwest.
It is important during these times that Muslims are aware of organizations that serve them and their needs. A donation box is also available for local supporters.
Several coordinated outreach events have already taken place including: the
Islamic Society of Northwest Suburbs in Rolling Meadows,
Muslim Community Center in Chicago,
Bait-ul-ilm in Streamwood,
the Islamic Community Center of Illinois in Chicago, and
the Muslim Educational Cultural Center of America in Willowbrook.
There are still many outreach events scheduled to take place this month, including:
the Mosque Foundation in Bridgeview,
Al-Azhar Islamic Foundation in Barrington,
Islamic Center of Quad Cities in Moline,
the Islamic Community Center of Des Plaines in Des Plaines,
Islamic Center of Naperville in Naperville
(stay tuned to our website for more outreach locations).
We would like to thank all participating mosques for their consistent support and their confidence in CAIR-Chicago's work.
