DETROIT, Mich. – African American Muslim leaders representing the Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA) in collaboration with Conveners of Imams Associated with the Community of W. Deen Mohammed, Muslim Journal, Al-Ummah, and The Muslim Wellness Foundation launched a historic assessment of the State of the African American Muslim Community.
The project will be conducted in four phases which began in the winter of 2022 and will end in the summer 2023. The project will conclude with a national State of the African American Muslim Community Report.
Assessing the State of the African American Muslim Community is an effort to bring together African American Muslims across the United States to closely analyze the issues facing the African American Muslim Community and to produce a consensus list of action items to address those issues.
Phase one of the project launched an online survey in December of 2022 targeting the African American Muslim population in the U.S.
Go to bit.ly/aamuslimproject or scan the QR code to take the online survey. Share your concerns and suggestions, interact with national leaders and solve problems together.
Phase two consists of convening national African American Muslim leaders and influencers to discuss challenges facing their constituents and problem solving strategies.
Phase three of the project invites African American Muslims from across the country to participate in an online National Town Hall Meeting where participants will interact with prominent leaders to discuss issues, best practices, and programmatic solutions.
The Final Report will be published in the summer of 2023.
