When CLCMA and MLFA accept a case, they fight for you, fearlessly and tirelessly. They will continue to the Supreme Court if need be. In this case, Mr. Ujima was awarded monetary damages and had hundreds of hours of paid time off restored. Disciplinary documentation was removed from his employment file. Although this is a partial success and a recognition of the injustice he suffered, CLCMA and MLFA continue to fight so that Mr. Ujima (and likely many, many others like him) can attend Friday prayers in peace.
Muslim Legal Fund of America stands in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in all kinds of tough situations. Insha Allah when MLFA and CLCMA make sure that Mr. Ujima can attend Jummuah prayers, this will blaze the trail for many more of us who may struggle to balance religious and work obligations.
I want to stand with Mr. Ujima and anyone else who wants to practice their religion.
