The nation's largest Muslim civil rights organization plans to open a satellite office in West Virginia.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations is currently seeking an executive director for a West Virginia office.
CAIR works to protect the civil rights of Muslim Americans through media relations, lobbying, legal assistance, advocacy, education and coalition building. It routinely condemns terrorism.
The DC-based organization has not announced a location, but Lori Saroya, national chapter director, said they hope to open in the next few months. The office will be the fifth to open in 2017.
