WHAT WE DO

Through shared knowledge and experience, community members work collectively to decrease the criminalization of the community. We do this through  programs focusing on Community Building and Civic Engagement & Policy Work.

FEATURED PROGRAM

The Musalla

Our musalla (place of prayer) is where we hold most of our islamic services that fall outside of our community work. In addition to being a place for muslims and non-muslims to learn about the centrality of justice and human dignity in Islam, it is also a place for quite reflection and a refuge from the constant pressures of the material world.
