Civil rights advocacy is at the heart of what CAIR-Houston does. CAIR protects the civil rights of all Americans regardless of faith. Our civil rights department attempts to resolve reports of discrimination through mediation, negotiation, or, if necessary, through legal action.
Civil rights are basic rights guaranteed to all Americans enforced through legal protection. These include:
- Bias-related incidents
- Hate crimes
- Unlawful discrimination
- Unfair treatment
