Counter-Islamophobia Project

Our Mission & Vision

Our Mission and Vision

CAIR's mission is to to enhance understanding of Islam, protect civil rights, promote justice, and empower American Muslims.

We envision a time when being Muslim carries a positive connotation and Islam has an equal place among many faiths in America’s pluralistic society.

Among the indicators that this vision had become a reality would be the following points:

  • Islam has a 75 percent or higher favorability rating among the general public.
  • A person’s Muslim faith is considered an asset in private employment and public service.
  • Politicians welcome and seek public support from Americans of the Islamic faith.
  • Association with anti-Muslim movements or rhetoric discredits those who put themselves forward seeking to earn the privilege of public service.
