On July 26, 2016, a young girl stepped up to the mic at a meeting of the San Diego Unified School District Board of Education.
"Good evening. My name is Sohaila Gebaly," she said. "I'm going to 6th grade. I love school and science."
Gebaly went on to tell board members that the year before, three boys in school started calling her names. When no one stopped them, they hit her, kicked her and pushed her.
That's when Jose Velazquez, a Navy veteran whose kids go to San Diego schools, went searching for an attorney who would listen to his concerns about CAIR.
"CAIR is creating division using religion and that's not right," he says. "Their agenda is to promote Islam in the school district, in the schools."
