Take Action!



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


MY NYC Program is an after-school program for Muslim and non-Muslim youth. The year-long program teaches students about leadership, organizing, and helps them identify a community problem to solve, helping them build critical leadership skills and connect with the community, educators, parents, and public officials.


MCN Serves is a community service program that leverages the good will of Muslim community members looking to give back to the community. We do this through our monthly Soup Kitchen, feeding the homeless, Bellevue NICU Luncheons. providing support to parents in need, and yearly Toy Drives and Pack-a-Thons that delivers food and toys to the needy.


MCN informs and educates the Muslim community on their civic duties as citizens and residents of this country – as well as connecting them to resources and tools that will help make their voices heard in society.

The hate is real! When government intervenes in how Islam should be taught, you know that this is a policy to demonize an entire religion.
That is why MCN's diversity education modules in public schools are so important to ensure that Islam is being portrayed in a truthful way! https://t.co/QHu615Z1P4

Join MCN and our youth activists for the NYC #ClimateStrike today at Foley Square! https://t.co/6vz7kG4X9L MCNNY photo
