Mission: MCN’s mission is to use civic education and leadership development to shape the public narrative about what it means to be Muslim in the United States of America.
Since 9/11, Muslims have been in the public eye. However, who we are and the reality of our lived experiences are often at odds with how we’re seen.
As the Muslim Community Network we aim to accurately shape the public narrative of what it means to be #MuslimByMuslims. We do this through diversity education on our faith and community, building partnerships for peace across all faiths, and facilitating the civic leadership of our community.
Founded in 2003, our roots are local – we are NYC’s go to civil-society nonprofit engaged in interfaith and civic-education work – and our reach is global, as we aim to help achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 16 to promote just, peaceful, and inclusive societies.
