Mission Statement

The Muslim Community Network identifies and cultivates the leadership skills of all Americans to fully participate in the social landscape. MCN’s strategies include creating strong relationships with other faith-based communities; articulating and advancing an understanding of the need for citizen engagement; developing the skills and ability of our community to affect change; and building the next generation’s identity and capacity as leaders.

Description

MCN was founded in 2003 by a group of New York City-based activists and volunteers responding to urgent needs in the community after 9/11. Since then, MCN has been working to build consensus and cooperation among Muslims, crossing ethnic, gender, class and religious boundaries to build unity and understanding. MCN became a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in 2008. MCN programs focus on a need to build strong community partnerships, empower the community to self-advocate for their rights and interests, and encourage a culture of civic engagement.
