Muslim Legal Fund of America
The Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA) is a 501 (c ) 3 nonprofit organization that funds legal work and programming to defend Muslims and Muslim organizations against injustice in American courtrooms, prisons, and communities. Muslim Legal Fund of America is the ONLY national tax-exempt nonprofit legal fund dedicated to defending Muslims’ civil rights and liberties at the federal level.
We believe that if Muslim individuals, families, and organizations know their legal and civil rights, there would be less injustice because of their beliefs and less violations of their civil liberties. This is formed on the basis of Religious Justice and Criminal Justice.

A nation where Muslims are treated like everyone else: An America in which constitutional rights and liberties are upheld equally for all, regardless of ethnicity, religion, or cultural heritage.
