Welcoming New Team Members
Welcoming New Team Members!
We are excited about our growing team. Furthermore, we are thrilled about the possibilities and opportunities to do good works for the Muslim community and community at large. For the next few weeks you will be seeing our team members in the community holding Know Your Rights trainings, civic education workshops, and voter registration drives.
Come say hello!
Please help us welcome our newest team members,
Nasreen Al-Assi and Majadi Baruti!
Nasreen Al-Assi joins our team as Volunteer Coordinator. Nasreen is an active member of the Muslim community leading initiatives to mobilize young Muslims. She is a Palestinian-American, born and raised in Alabama, with a passion for social justice.
She has been a big part of our organization from the beginning as a founding volunteer. In her new role, Nasreen will work to enhance volunteering opportunities with CAIR-Alabama. Looking to be part of a movement? You can contact her here.
In addition to her work with CAIR-Alabama, Nasreen is Admissions Coordinator at Hazelrig-Salter Radiation Oncology Center. She is a graduate of the University of Alabama at Birmingham and is currently earning her master's degree in Health Quality and Safety, also at UAB.
Majadi Baruti joins us as our Community Organizer in a shared capacity with Greater Birmingham Ministries and Stand As One coalition through a community grant. Majadi will be assisting with our Get Out the Muslim Vote campaign.
He is also Community Engagement Director with the non-profit, Dynamite Hill-Smithfield Community Land Trust. Since his teenage years in Chicago, IL, Majadi has been involved in many types of Civic Engagement and Civil Rights work. He served over two years with AmeriCorps and has trained with Highlander Research and Education Center in the field of popular education and is proficient in asset-based community development.
Majadi also enjoys his life as a Poet and as an Urban Farmer at Ua Mer Urban Farms.
You can visit our website to invite us to your community for a Know Your Rights Training, By-stander Intervention Workshop, Anti-bullying Workshop, Voter Education, and Voter Registration.
CAIR-Alabama urges community members to report any bias incidents to police and to our office at 205-531-7766 or by filing a report here.
As a nonpartisan organization CAIR-Alabama is able to encourage Muslims to participate in national and state elections, conduct voter registrations, training programs, issue briefings, candidate forums, volunteer in campaigns, and get out the vote drives. Nonprofits cannot engage in political activities that support one candidate or party over another, but we are committed to making our community’s voice heard.
