In our quest to be a leading advocate; a voice for justice and equal rights, we found inspiration and support in you.

We have served and represented the Muslim community in court, in the halls of Congress, and on the public square. We have held our representatives accountable. We have challenged those who lie and mislead about Islam and Muslims. We have been a resource for those seeking legal assistance. We've stood in solidarity for equal justice for all.

I am proud of all that our dedicated team has accomplished and the impact we've made in 2017. InshaAllah (God Willing) with your trust and continued support we are going to be a formidable force in the next. 


In solidarity,
