Mission Statement

Park51 will be a vibrant and inclusive center, reflecting the diverse spectrum of cultures and traditions, and serving New York City with programs in education, arts, culture and recreation.

Inspired by Islamic values and Muslim heritage, Park51 will weave the Muslim-American identity into the multicultural fabric of the United States. Park51 aims to foster cooperation and understanding between people of all faiths and backgrounds through relevant programs and initiatives.

Description

A group of downtown Muslim Americans envisioned a sanctuary that celebrates the best qualities of our faith and our city - a place where everyone is welcome to learn, experience arts and culture, explore spirituality and strengthen their bodies. Park51 was conceived as a way to give back to New York City, to help rebuild and reinvigorate lower Manhattan while developing a new perspective on Muslims in America. - See more at: http://park51.org/our-story/#sthash.bqVkMlwe.dpuf
