CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) has launched a “#RegisterMeFirst” website designed to challenge Islamophobic policies, including the ongoing “Muslim ban” and a proposed “Muslim registry.” Registermefirst.com provides an opportunity for anyone who wants to oppose the Muslim Ban, any future Muslim registry or other unconstitutional actions by the current administration to join the broader movement challenging those unjust policies. If you sign up at the site, you will get updates on how they can express their solidarity with American Muslims and how they can oppose Islamophobic policies and proposals.
