We expect this year’s annual banquet to bring over 500 diverse supporters from government, faith, business, non-profit, and community-based organizations as well as Muslim community members who share a deep commitment to the ideals of justice and mutual understanding. CAIR-WA’s events have a reputation for being diverse, hopeful and action-oriented. This is a great opportunity to share your organization's message with our audience of more than 500 supporters.
This year’s event is special because our work takes on a new urgency when the next generation of American Muslims cannot focus on getting their education and live in fear every day. Today, even in Washington State, American Muslim children are afraid to go to school or public places and Muslim hospital workers are called religious and ethnic slurs by patients who refuse their medical care.
We believe in the future of our country and its diverse people. We want our children to become not only full participants in society but to follow their hopes and dreams and become leaders in American society. But, first, we know we have to expand our work to be able tell our stories far beyond the enlightened few.
