OUR MISSION

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.



YOUTH LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

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.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

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.

CIVIC EDUCATION

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.

Judge Maldonado's recommendation to fire police officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner is a right one that should have been made years ago. Racism and excessive force in the criminal justice system must cease!

Finally! We're happy to see that the city took the right and fair measure of firing NYPD Officer Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner.

It took years of activism, community solidarity, and raising our voices to ensure that justice was served.

We are glad that the Garner family can finally see the justice that they deserved. The community came together from all walks, faiths, and ethnicities to unite for justice for the Garner family. We pray that our families and communities may live in peace and in a society that makes all of our lives matter.
