American Muslims are increasingly facing hostility because of their religion. We’re fighting to ensure that all people can express their faith free from discrimination and bigotry.
Religious freedom is one of the bedrock principles upon which the United States was founded. Yet, American Muslims have increasingly faced bigotry, discrimination, and hostility to their very right to worship. Muslim Advocates works to protect American Muslims to build and maintain mosques and to worship free from discrimination.
Religious freedom is a shield to protect people from religious discrimination, not a sword to deny people their most basic rights.
Learn more about Muslim Advocates’ efforts to ensure that mosque permits are approved free from discrimination, that people in institutions can worship freely, and that the cause of religious freedom isn’t hijacked by those who seek to turn this basic principle on its head.
