Know Your Rights
Islamic Center of Rolla MO
Friday October 16th Maghrib - Isha
CAIR-STL will be holding a Jummah Khutbah and a Know Your Rights presentation at the Rolla Islamic Center on Friday October 16th from Maghrib till Isha. The discussion will cover your rights in the workplace, at University, with law enforcement, sending money overseas, and much more.
Approximately 400 people gathered on Delmar Boulevard on Sunday evening for STL for Syria’s #BringThemHere march, which called for the government to accept as many Syrian refugees as possible into St. Louis.
Photos went viral in early September of a young Syrian boy washed up on a Turkish beach. The boy, along with his brother and mother, had drowned while trying to flee from Turkey to the Greek Island of Kos, sparking debate about immigration policies surrounding an ongoing and escalating Syrian refugee crisis.
The march maybe over but now the real work begins.
We invite you help us launch a Nation wide campaign to #BringThemHere________(every city in America). This will involve organizing, advocacy, putting pressure on elected officials, launching social service wing, funding, and much more. STL will be the center for this new campaign but it will only work with your help.
Join us for the 1st organizing meeting on
WHEN: Saturday October 3rd @6:30 PM
WHERE: Dar-Al-Jalal Islamic Center (8945 Dunn Rd, Hazelwood MO 63042).
Dinner will be provided and we need everyone who is truly passionate about not just talking about but taking actions to bring Syrian refugees to the U.S.
This campaign is just getting started and it needs you to make it successful.
