The Council on American Islamic Relations of Oklahoma is a uniquely positioned nonprofit providing a continuum of supports to the Muslim community in Oklahoma through legislative advocacy, civil rights assistance, refugee “neighbor” re-settlement, interfaith dialogue and various programs for education and mission including to those most vulnerable within the Muslim community.
