Introducing Muslim Advocates – the Muslim-American civil rights group that CAIR should have been. Founded by the National Association of Muslim Lawyers (NAML), they are hitting precisely the right note in their mission statement about seeking freedom and justice for all.
They have hit the ground running, by producing this excellent video titled “Got Rights?” :
Watch This Video: It will give you crucial Information about how to protect you and your family when approached by law enforcement.
Since the terrorist attacks of 9-11, Muslims, Sikhs, Arabs and South Asians have endured particular scrutiny by law enforcement — and in some cases, questioning and searches that infringe fundamental rights at the core of the Constitution. In this climate, it is vital that members of our communities inform themselves about our rights as Americans.
Then, Take Action: Share the video with your family and friends; and visit our website to tell us about your experiences with law enforcement.
To change discriminatory policies, we first need to educate our fellow Americans about our experiences. Help stop racial and religious profiling.
Brilliant. They also invite you to share your story with them if you’ve been denied your rights or had an otherwise unjust encounter with the law.
