Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) national executive director, Nihad Awad, clarified that the organizations on the platform- all members of the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO)- were not endorsing any presidential candidate.
The “One America” campaign was the outcome of a day long conference of leaders of Muslim organizations yesterday in northern Virginia.
According to CAIR, there is a lot of anti-Islamic rhetoric being used now and billboards like this one aim to reach the average majority of Americans who may not know much about Islam or Muslims.
The plans, including voter registration drives and open-house days at mosques, were announced in Washington on Monday, a day after an emergency summit over the matter was attended by 100 leaders from across the country, the Associated Press reported.
Donald Trump has been heavily criticized for his stance on Islam, but a recent statement by American Muslim leaders may be the strongest warning yet that the candidate has received over his proposed policies. Organizers say they will work with civil rights and interfaith groups to try to defeat politicians with bigoted views.
Detectives said the man might have made an explosive device at his home.
The study by the California State University research group showed that the incidents consisted of assaults on hijab-wearing students, arson and vandalism on mosques as well as shootings and death threats aimed at Islamic-owned businesses, the media outlet said. His name and age were not released.
