The right to counsel is protected by the Sixth Amendment of the Constitution. Without the incredible work funded by your donations to MLFA, our brothers and sisters get steamrolled by fear-based legislation and practices. We protect Muslim communities and the good deeds of our brothers and sisters. Because we fund constitutionally protected legal representation, we also protect our donors. Let’s take a stand together and create safe spaces for Muslim communities in the United States.
