The government took the position that not even the power of government can take away those rights." - Imam W. Deen Mohammed

As Muslims we are working to present our own narrative to the American public. Muslim Americans understand the magnitude of the challenge facing our nation and our community.  The Mosque Cares is participating in USCMO initiatives which include: the One America Campaign to enhance understanding of Muslims and Islam; a Million Voters Registration Drive prior to the 2016 presidential election; and a National Open Mosque Day designed to help increase interactions between Muslims and people of other faiths and backgrounds. As always, The Mosque Cares will continue its strong alliances with interfaith partners, social justice groups and other minority communities, Insha Allah.
