Overview: America has witnessed the expansion of Islam from a few mosques in urban cities to today's rural south and the Midwestern heartland, or as one poet put it, 'from sea to shining sea.' Muslim schools, businesses, political organizations, associations, and institutions, inundate the landscape of America.

Despite Islam's growth in America, there are certain groups in and outside of America that have long used bigoted distortions of Islam; portraying Muslims in America as seditious, dangerous, and totally incompatible with American life. Since the Sept. 11th tragedy, these same forces have intensified this vile propaganda with reckless abandonment. It is important that Muslims in America not be viewed as a 'fifth column.' Muslims must continue to build a grassroots movement that supports an all-encompassing approach of total integration into American Society for the express purpose of fulfilling the mandate of Allah (SWT) 'to enjoin that which is good and forbid that which is bad,' in a quest to make a better America for ourselves, our children, and all Americas.

Our Mission: To build an integrated empowerment process for the American Muslim community through civic education, participation, community outreach, and coalition building; to forge positive relationships with other institutions outside of our community, that will ensure and facilitate the protection of civil rights and liberties for American Muslims and all Americans

Methodology: Masjid-based grassroots education, local leadership training, youth training, coalition building and networking, and special events towards positively impacting mainstream America.

Focus: Engagement of the following American institutions and organizations in order to build a broad based coalition that will enhance the religious political and social viability of the American Muslim Community:

Voter Registration & Education Organizations
Local civic groups
Municipal & state officials
Congress
Civil rights and progressive political groups: NAACP, ACLU, ANSWER, SCLC, CRLC
Organized labor
The Media
College campuses
Immigrant groups, Black, Hispanic, & Asian churches, & other non-Muslim religious institutions
