Campaigns

Explore the Quran

campaign explore the quranThis campaign was a product of CAIR's strategic approach to reshaping perceptions about Islam and Muslims. In 2005, a CAIR survey confirmed earlier findings that 60 percent of Americans are not knowledgeable about Islam. However, a significant percentage welcomed the opportunity to learn about Islam. Nearly 1 in 5 Americans said that they would like to receive a free copy of the Quran.

Since the campaign was first launched, nearly 28,000 people have requested a free copy of the Quran. This report presents the current status of the campaign and identifies additional resources needed to continue the project to reach more Americans.

Mission Statement for "Explore the Quran" Campaign

In order to promote mutual understanding and educate others about Islam, CAIR will provide a free copy of the meaning of the Quran in English to Americans of other faiths.

Journalist's Guide

campaign Journalists GuideIn 2007, CAIR launched a major initiative to help enhance understanding of Islam and Muslims in the news media.

Called "Beyond Stereotypes," the campaign centers around distribution of the publication American Muslims: A Journalist's Guide to Understanding Islam and Muslims to editors, reporters, producers, and other journalists nationwide.

CAIR's guide offers journalists tools to gain a better understanding of Islam and to write accurate and balanced stories about Muslims. It also offers background information on issues related to Islam and Muslims, best practices for reporting on the American Muslim community, and definitions of terminology often used in news stories or editorials.

We encourage media professionals who want a free copy of the guide to request one through our website, and we ask American Muslims to sponsor copies of the guide or to order hard copies to distribute to your local media outlets.

Islamophobia

campaign islamophobia

CAIR’s department to monitor and combat Islamophobia tracks sources and incidents of Islamophobia across the country, creates dossiers on prominent Islamophobes, and produces factsheets to debunk false information that has been spread about Islam.

In 2013, we released our second Islamophobia report, a 148-page publication that details the 37 groups whose primary purpose is to promote prejudice against or hatred of Islam and Muslims. The report shows that this “inner core” of Islamophobes enjoyed access to more than $119 million in funding between 2008 and 2011, or almost $30 million per year.

The report also tracks the 78 bills or amendments designed to restrict Muslims’ religious practices that have been introduced in state legislatures and the U.S. Congress.

Islamophobia.org presents detailed profiles of individuals and institutions involved in the American Islamophobia network.
