Five U.S. Congressmen commend CAIR-Chicago!

“Illinois takes great pride in its vibrant Muslim community here in Chicago, and throughout the state. I salute the CAIR-Chicago chapter for their ongoing efforts to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.”

– Bobby L. Rush
U.S. Representative, 2nd Congressional District of IL

“I salute CAIR-Chicago for their commitment to justice and equality for Muslim Americans and all Americans. CAIR understands that in defending Muslim Americans against employment discrimination, prison abuse, hate crimes and citizenship delays they are also defending our American values for every American. Your unyielding commitment to justice, not only for the Muslim community, but for every member of our society is consistent with our nation’s core values.”

– Danny K. Davis
U.S. Representative, 7th Congressional District of IL

“CAIR-Chicago facilitates open lines of communication between different cultures and religions. Their efforts encouraging equality, enhancing cultural knowledge, and promoting justice are both admirable and necessary. The work that CAIR-Chicago does for our city and across the nation not only enriches the Muslim community but also expands the breadth of dialogue between cultures. I thank them for their efforts.”

– Mike Quigley
U.S. Representative, 5th Congressional District of IL

“CAIR-Chicago’s commitment to promoting tolerance and defending civil rights reminds us of the significant contributions American Muslims have made to our country. I would like to extend my gratitude to all CAIR-Chicago members for working together to support a new generation of leaders who will continue our mutual goal of guaranteeing equality and respect for all people. ”

– Tammy Duckworth
U.S. Representative, 8th Congressional District of IL

“This year’s theme, #HateFree, could not be timelier. The theme amplifies the notion that we must all work together, putting our differences aside to prosper as a nation. We are living in a time of intolerance of the Muslim faith, and we have a responsibility to display the true nature of Islam to our non-Muslim brothers and sisters. CAIR’s advocacy on behalf of our community is unparalleled, and its dedication to promoting equal justice while encouraging understanding and dialogue among all faiths is crucial. I am grateful that CAIR positively showcases American Muslim contributions to our great country.”

– Andre Carson
U.S. Representative, 7th Congressional District of IN
