CAIR-MN Awarded Grant Money To Fight Discrimination
The largest civil liberties organization for Muslims in Minnesota says it's received numerous grants from local foundations to help fight discrimination in the state at a time when tensions and fears are running high.
The state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations announced Tuesday that it's been awarded more than $50,000 in grant money and that it could receive another $25,000 in a matching grant if it's able to raise that same amount.
Jaylani Hussein, the executive director of CAIR-MN, said the money will be used to help cover $100,000 in unbudgeted expenses stemming from an increased demand in its services to help fight discrimination.
