CAIR to Release Report Documenting 'Sharp' Spike in Anti-Muslim Bias Incidents

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 5/5/2017) – On Tuesday, May 9, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, will hold a news conference at its Capitol Hill headquarters in Washington, D.C., to release a report detailing a more than 50 percent increase in anti-Muslim bias incidents in 2016 over the previous year.

[MEDIA NOTE: The news conference will be livestreamed on CAIR's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CAIRNational ]

CAIR's new report, titled "The Empowerment of Hate," will also outline how the increase in anti-Muslim bias incidents has been accompanied by a similar spike in anti-Muslim hate crimes during the same period. [NOTE: The report focuses primarily on 2016, but also contains data on cases documented by CAIR during the 2014-2016 period.]

WHAT: Release of CAIR's New 'The Empowerment of Hate' Report on Anti-Muslim Bias Incidents
WHEN: Tuesday, May 9, 10:30 a.m.
WHERE: CAIR's Capitol Hill Headquarters, 453 New Jersey Avenue, SE, Washington, DC, 20003
CONTACT: CAIR Department to Monitor and Combat Islamophobia Director Corey Saylor, 202-384-8857, csaylor@cair.com

"This report shows not only that anti-Muslim bias incidents have increased sharply, but also that there is a disturbing trend toward the increasing use of violence against American Muslims and those perceived to be Muslim," said Corey Saylor, director of CAIR's Department to Monitor and Combat Islamophobia and co-author of the report.

He said other issues covered in the report include public officials conditioning American audiences to fear Muslims, cases of "flying while Muslim," closures of bank accounts linked to Muslim names, denials of religious accommodations, inappropriate questioning by the FBI, the impact of Islamophobia in educational institutions, terror watch lists, and workplace discrimination.

CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.

La misión de CAIR es mejorar la comprensión del Islam, fomentar el diálogo, proteger las libertades civiles, capacitar a los musulmanes estadounidenses, y construir coaliciones que promuevan la justicia y la comprensión mutua.
