Thank you, from the CAIR-WA team!
End of Year Edition
As we wrap up 2017, CAIR-WA wants to thank YOU! 
We've been busy all year at CAIR-WA, and our work wouldn't be possible without so many of you! We want to thank everyone who reported incidents to CAIR-WA and who encouraged their family and friends to report to us to bring their cases to justice. Thank you to all of the donors who continue to support the fight defending religious freedom for all. Thank you to all of our allies and advocates who know how important it is to uplift one another's voices in this critical time. 
And of course, thank you to the stellar CAIR-WA team and board for all you do to make our state and country a more just and equitable place.
