  • Khashoggi's Fight Against Pseudo Reform

    October 12, 2018
    On October 2nd, Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist, went missing during a trip to the Saudi consulate in Turkey. His disappearance comports with the rise of suppression in the Middle East which threatens dissidents, journalists and human rights activists. We believe that the United State’s role in this crisis is to demand that all governments, especially those of our allies, abide by human rights standards.

  • Turning the Tables on Hate

    September 20, 2018
    When a Southern California Muslim woman was reported to and stopped by the police for no other crime than walking down the street in a hijab, she turned the tables on hate with MPAC President Salam Al-Marayati and 40 other community members, by holding a press conference offering gratitude and calling for greater education and understanding.

IN THEIR WORDS

  • If MPAC existed in 1942, Japanese Americans would have never gone to [internment] camps. And this is why, as a Congressman, I'm here for this community too.
    Fmr. Congressman Mike Honda
  • MPAC is a bastion of hope for anyone seeking to unite and empower those seeking positivity in our society. MPAC is a stronghold for the voiceless and underrepresented. MPAC’s vision for a more inclusive and uplifting society is in line with my own vision.
    Adel Kamal MPAC Supporter
  • There has never been a more brilliant, empassioned, visionary staff and group of people that exists at the Muslim Public Affairs Council.
    Rev. Ed Bacon Rector Emeritus, All Saints Church, Pasadena
  • The best way to ensure equality and justice is to build bridges in the community and that is exactly what all you are doing.
    Congresswoman Judy Chu
  • My son attended an MPAC event where Khizr Khan, George Takei, and Van Jones spoke about Islam and Muslims. You gave my son a sense of pride in his identity, he donated to MPAC, and he asked how he could work for MPAC when he was older. Thank you.
    Nancy Serag MPAC Supporter
  • In terms of messaging and being succinct and lobbying legislators and dealing with... Hollywood, MPAC does one of the best jobs in the Muslim comunity.
