10 Years of Building Tomorrow’s Leaders

August 23, 2017

Dear Friend,

In 2007, we organized our first Young Leaders Summit to create the next generation of American Muslim leaders in policy, news media and Hollywood.

Where are we now?

  • Nearly 600 young American Muslims have participated in our Summits and internships.
  • Alumni have thriving careers in at the State Department, United Nations, ACLU, Al-Jazeera English, BuzzFeed and YouTube among others.

Invest in the future of a more vibrant America with a donation of $100 to our Young Leaders programs. See pictures from this year’s Summits below.

Highlights from our 2017 Summits

Policy & Media Summit

Delegates met with the Justice Department, State Department, Google, Members of Congress, Huffington Post and the Brookings Institute among others.

“If I could describe the MPAC Policy and Media Summit in one word I would say ’hopeful.’ Spending time with bright, ambitious and and passionate leaders made me hopeful for the future of American society. Amidst adversity and a stressful political climate, everyone remained vigilant and hopeful."
- Elizabeth Wright, 2017 Policy & Media Summit Delegate

Hollywood Summit

Delegates met with Walt Disney Studios, FX Network, CBS Television, Sundance Institute, YouTube Space and Participant Media among others.

"MPAC is really creating an opportunity to bridge communities of practice with communities of influence and it needs to be funded. We need to be able to finance our own stories, we need to be able to tell our own narratives, we need to be able to create amazing content not just for the Muslim community but for the larger community.”
- Hazami Barmada, 2017 Hollywood Summit Delegate

We provide passionate young American Muslims with unprecedented levels of access to engage and influence decision-makers in our nation’s capital and Hollywood. Our Summits are changing the narrative about our faith and identity. Do you want ‘in’ on this movement? Donate $100 today to support Young Leaders of tomorrow.

In service,

Salam Al-Marayati
MPAC President
