Volunteering with CAIR-Houston is an excellent way to exercise our faith, work towards a better America, build your resume and gain a wide range of experience.
We are currently searching for volunteers for the following projects:
Media Watch Committee click here to sign up
The committee's primary duties will entail watching and/or listening to the media and co-ordinate responses to deconstruct sensational and biased coverage of issues pertinent to Muslims and Islam. The purpose is to flag such pieces, to highlight their inaccuracies, and to offer thoughtful analyses that diffuse misconceptions. We are currently recruiting volunteers for this task and will be offering a media watch and response seminar for those who join the committee at the end of this month insha'Allah.
Estimated hours a week: 5 to 7
Hate Site Response Team click here to sign up
The purpose of this project is to search out websites on the internet who are calling for violence, racism, and/or prejudice against Muslims outside of the bounds of First Amendment protection. CAIR-Houston staff will then work closely with hosting companies and domain registrars to take these websites offline. We are currently recruiting volunteers for this massive undertaking.
Estimated hours a week: 3 to 5
