(WASHINGTON, D.C., 12/2/2022) - The Missouri and Connecticut chapters of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MO, CAIR-CT), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today condemned the distribution of white supremacist and antisemitic hate propaganda in those states. Residents in Southbury, Conn., discovered white supremacist material in sandwich bags in their driveways and on porches last month. “We condemn this attempt to spread racist hate in our communities and urge political and religious leaders to speak out strongly against the growing bigotry we are unfortunately seeing nationwide,” said CAIR-Connecticut Chair Farhan Memon.He noted that CAIR-CT previously condemned the distribution of racist flyers to neighborhoods in other cities. CAIR similarly condemned the promotion of racist hate in a number of other states nationwide. In South St. Louis, Mo., residents found multiple plastic bags on the street filled with antisemitic language and drawings. “Antisemitism is a growing problem around our nation that must be addressed by Americans of all faiths and backgrounds,” said CAIR-MO Board Chair Yasir Ali. “We condemn this and all such efforts to promote hatred and division.”
