Speaking to an audience of over 30 worshippers, Executive Director Faizan Syed spoke about rights and responsibilities when dealing with law enforcement, suffering discrimination in the workplace, and much more. "If you believe you are the victim of discrimination at work then tell human resources" explained Faizan Syed, "It's important that you document everything and find witnesses. All of this will help your case".

Defend the Honor of Muhammad BillboardAs Muslims it is our duty to defend the honor of Prophet Muhammad (May Peace be Upon Him) when his honor is violated. It pains me to have to inform many of you that in Saint Louis, over 100 anti-Islam propaganda billboards with cartoon drawings of the Prophet Muhammad (May Peace be Upon Him) have gone up in our community. These billboards are financed by the well-known anti-Islam hate group called the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), which the Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled as a hate group.

Every year CAIR-STL takes on dozens of civil liberties cases. These cases involve American Muslims who suffer discrimination at work, lose their jobs or are never hired because of their appearance, are bullied in school, targeted by the FBI and immigration law enforcement, are harassed by anti-Islam groups, targets of hate crimes, and much more. Many cases go unreported as American Muslims worry about high legal costs and never pursue their case. I believe this is wrong. Anyone who has a case of discrimination should have the resources and ability to fight it in court.
