1) Continue to build bi-partisan partnerships with policy-makers at the city, state and federal levels.
- As a result of these partnerships, policy makers and government leaders will call on us to speak, present and serve as experts and thought leaders in critical public spaces.
- Our position as experts will also enable us to be leaders in shaping the public narrative about what it means to be Muslim.
2) Continue to build relationships with institutions that have resources we can leverage, including resources, new networks, more established networks, and deeper expertise in our core areas.
- We will focus on building partnerships with: (a) People and institutions that build donor/ supporter base; (b) Corporations; (c) Faith-based groups; and (d) Government, in a transactional way (e.g., contracts to build/ implement curriculum in schools.)
- We will also focus on participating on panels and in working groups in which we can take a leadership role.
3) We will build and cultivate leaders in the community across generations to be the ones bringing about change.
- We will focus on programing that grooms Muslim youth to get jobs and to presentable in leadership positions by building brick and mortar skills.
- We will also focus on community education programming that expands people’s ideas of, and skills around, what it means to be successful.
