Interested in having a Religious Diversity Training presentantion at your school?




We are dedicated to using civic education and leadership development to shape the public narrative about what it means to be Muslim in America.


Using a social justice framework, MCN is able to encourage engagement and address root causes of inequality.

Working with all of New York’s diverse Muslim and non-Muslim communities to facilitate the emergence of a new Muslim identity. One that transcends generational, ethnic, gender, racial and class-based boundaries.

We believe everybody should be involved in shaping the future of our shared community. Mutual consultation informs a decision-making process that builds consensus and cooperation across diverse communities.

We encourage all New Yorkers to engage in tough conversations and take an active role in their society. We also secure a space for them to do it. Rather than attempt to represent all Muslims or New Yorkers, we prefer to bring people to the table to represent themselves.

We facilitate individual and community empowerment by providing spaces for reflection and awareness within the Muslim community, which develops the confidence and self-reliance necessary for the realization of power.

We value partnership as a means of effectively expanding the ways in which we can serve multiple communities through multiple methods.

We seek to connect those with experience and expertise to audiences that can benefit from their teaching.
