10 Years of Summits: Looking Towards the Future

July 18, 2016

Dear Friend,

We couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you for being a pioneer in our movement to develop confident American Muslim leaders to enrich the fields of public policy, media, and Hollywood.

Back in 2007 when we organized our first Young Leaders Summit in Washington, DC, our allies in government were always talking about young American Muslims without ever actually talking to them -- and American Muslims were doing the same. With your help, we have fundamentally altered those dynamics for the benefit of our communities and our country!

Last week, we wrapped up our 10th annual Young Leaders Summits. Over the the past decade, we have convened a total of 28 Summits in Government, Hollywood, Media and Silicon Valley, and in the process, built a vibrant network of over 500 students and professionals.

Will you join us today in celebrating this 10 year milestone by investing $10/month to support our Young Leaders programs?

Our alumni have gone on to internships and careers in:

Public Policy - The White House, the United Nations, U.S. Foreign Service, Congressional offices, US Agency for International Development, and the Departments of Justice, Homeland Security and State;

Media - The New York Times, ABC News, Huffington Post, Al-Jazeera English, and launched new platforms like The Tempest and YouTube channels;

Hollywood - CBS Television, HBO, BuzzFeed, and YouTube Spaces

We are incredibly proud of the work our Young Leaders alumni are doing everyday to increase understanding and improve policies that affect American Muslims.
