And you want to make a difference.
Make Progress in Perceptions
Pop culture is the only contact millions of Americans have with Muslims and Islam, and for decades, we have been portrayed as stereotypes. Our Hollywood Bureau has become the go-to firm for entertainment executives, filmmakers, and creatives looking to get it right.
We improve stories about Muslims on screen by consulting on projects from blockbuster films to Superbowl commercials, connecting the industry with Muslim talent, and providing thought leadership to industry leaders.
Build Power in Politics
Our work in Washington, DC ensures that Muslim voices are present at the decision-making table and that we are mobilized for the 2022 elections. We work diligently with policymakers to block bigoted policies like the Muslim Ban and advocate for legislation that safeguards our community.
Inject Pride in Our Identity
We need a Congress that reflects its people. That’s why we’ve built the largest platform for proud young Muslims to enter careers in Congress and public service through our Congressional Leadership Development Program, with 10 weeks of immersive and hands-on experience, coaching, and training on Capitol Hill.
Why should I give to MPAC?
MPAC changes how America views Islam and Muslims by working directly with government and Hollywood decision-makers. This improves principled legislation and authentic portrayals on film and TV. We also maintain an eye on the future by training the next generation to become leaders in government and Hollywood.
We’ve come a long way but American Muslims are still the target of hateful stereotypes. We’ve been fighting for you for 30 years and are leveraging our access, networks, and partners to hold people in power accountable and build a future free from fear and bigotry.
God reminds us in the Quran that He will place challenges in front of us as a means for us to rise to our best selves.
“And We will most certainly try you with something of fear and hunger and loss of property and lives and fruits — and give good news to the patient ones.” (2:155)
Thanks to your generosity, we can ensure that all families live without fear and bigotry. Creating change is like running a marathon. And your support can fuel that race.
