CAIR Tracks racial profiling

The San Francisco Bay Area chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations has announced that it plans to launch a new study examining the civil rights status of Bay Area Muslims.

According to the organization, the study will focus on racial profiling by documenting and investigating claims from anyone who may have been profiled based on skin color, clothing or religion.

Members of the Council on American-Islamic Relations hope the planned study will help advocate on behalf of victims of racial profiling, as well as to help compile statistics for an annual civil rights report on racial profiling, according to CAIR-SFBA spokeswoman Abiya Ahmed.
