WE BELIEVE THAT

  • The U.S. Bill of Rights Applies to Muslims in America.

  • Muslims Have the Right to Fair Trials.

  • Being Muslim Should Not Make You a Suspect or Target of Law Enforcement Agencies.

  • Injustice Against One is an Injustice Against All.

  • Without Justice, There is No Freedom or Liberty.

THIS IS WHAT MUSLIMS ARE FACING IN AMERICA

Criminal Issues

Everyone should have the same rights guaranteed under law by the Constitution, regardless of one’s race, religion, or country of origin, but sometimes, Muslims face challenges to those rights. When the government targets someone on the basis of national security by compromising their rights, we step in to help.

Civil Issues

The ‘Terrorist Watch List’ is used to deny substantive constitutional rights to individuals. Federal and state governments may deny religious accommodations to eligible persons and organizations, hate groups may engage in unlawful activities against Muslims, and Muslims can be denied service based on religious affiliation.

Immigration Issues

Muslims may face more complex legal issues and delays in immigration appeals or removal proceedings in federal court, often related to questions of national security, and many times, in violation of the Constitution.

Community Issues

As Muslims in America, we are put under the microscope as “persons of interest” – this means that our communities, organizations, and institutions are, too. We work to ensure our leaders and investments are protected and secured for generations to come.

An America in which constitutional rights and liberties are upheld equally for all, regardless of ethnicity, religion, or cultural heritage.

To advance equality and justice for American Muslims by protecting their constitutional rights, in and out of court, through legal defense, legal compliance, and education related to high-risk national security matters.
