CAIR-Chicago and MYLS Participate in “United We Serve” National Service Campaign

CAIR-Chicago, along with the Muslim Youth Leadership Symposium (MYLS), will join thousands across the country this summer in answering President Barack Obama’s call on all Americans to participate in our nation’s recovery and renewal by serving our communities.
SEE: United We Serve

American Muslims all over the US are joining the President’s service campaign, as he acknowledged in his recent Ramadan message:

    “Faith-based organizations, including many Islamic organizations, have been at the forefront in participating in this summer of service.” – President Barack Obama
