(ATLANTA, GA - 10/24/18) The Georgia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations today strongly encouraged Georgia Muslim voters to cast their election ballots early in order to ensure they have time to report and address any voter suppression tactics.
"Voter suppression has returned to Georgia with a vengeance," said CAIR Georgia staff attorney Murtaza Khwaja. "Between rejected absentee ballots, a draconian exact match law, malfunctioning voter machines, a biased Secretary of State, and 53,000 delayed registration forms, our state is well on its way to silencing thousands of voters, including Georgia Muslims."
(ATLANTA, GA - 7/11/2019) The Georgia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations today announced that one of its clients has received a settlement worth almost $25,000 after experiencing anti-Muslim harassment on the job.
As part of a confidential settlement agreement, CAIR Georgia has agreed not to publicly identify the employer responsible for the anti-Muslim harassment.
"We thank God for this positive outcome, and we strongly encourage other Georgia Muslims who experience workplace discrimination to stand up for their rights," said CAIR-Georgia staff attorney Murtaza Khwaja. "Do not suffer quietly. Alert us immediately so that we can help you stop the discrimination and protect your rights."
