The Muslim Legal Fund of America considers only cases with significant potential impact on civil rights and liberties in America. MLFA does not fund cases solely on the basis of a person’s religious identity. While our focus is protecting the civil rights and liberties of a persecuted minority in America (Muslims), being Muslim alone does not qualify an individual, group or organization for assistance from MLFA.
Due to limited resources, the Muslim Legal Fund of America cannot fund every case presented to the organization. MLFA declining to fund a case does not necessarily mean that a case lacks merit. If MLFA is unable to fund a case, there are legal aid organizations that may be able to assist you. MLFA has no control over the decision of these or other organizations.
ALL APPLICATIONS FOR ASSISTANCE ARE PROCESSED THROUGH CONSTITUTIONAL LAW CENTER FOR MUSLIMS IN AMERICA (CLCMA), A CHARITABLE LAW FIRM FUNDED THROUGH A GENEROUS GRANT FROM MUSLIM LEGAL FUND OF AMERICA (MLFA).
