Attorney General James Releases Statement on CAIR-NY’s Survey of Hate Crimes and Bias against Muslim New Yorkers

NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today released the following statement in response to the Council on American Islamic Relations New York’s (CAIR-NY) report on hate crimes and bias incidents against Muslim New Yorkers:

“The findings in CAIR-NY’s survey demonstrate that more needs to be done to protect and support Muslim New Yorkers. It’s clear that years of unjust policies and prejudice have left deep wounds in Muslim communities in New York. No New Yorker should be targeted or discriminated against because of what they believe, what they wear, or the color of their skin. My office will continue our work to take on hate and bias and make sure every New Yorker feels safe here.”
