  • Forced Cremations in Sri Lanka Violate Religious Freedom

    January 11, 2021
    Forced cremation is a forbidden practice in the faith traditions of Islam and Christianity. We ask that the United States initiate an independent investigation into Sri Lanka's policy, its formation, and the harms that have resulted therefrom.

  • Two MPAC Allies Earn Government Appointments

    January 8, 2021
    MPAC congratulates the recent appointments of two staunch allies of the American Muslim community to the government: Xavier Becerra and Vanita Gupta. We look forward to working with them on our shared goal of developing a robust, inclusive American pluralism that defends the rights of all.

  • The Muslim Public Affairs Council Supports Congressional Action to Remove Trump from Office

    January 7, 2021
    Acts of sedition are a crime under 18 U.S. Code § 2383. Trump’s rhetoric bolsters white supremacist movements, as does the complicity by members of Congress who ‘stand back and stand by.’ MPAC joins calls to remove Trump for his gross assault on the U.S. Constitution.

  • We Were Wrong on CVE

    December 28, 2020
    Standing for justice means acknowledging past mistakes and reinvigorating our commitment to those we serve. Our goal had always been to eliminate or change Countering Violent Extremism policies. We recognize our position was wrong.

  • On Veteran’s Day: Honoring the Service of American Muslims

    November 11, 2020
    American Muslims have been an essential part of our American community dating back our nation's founding. This Veteran’s Day, it is important to highlight the role that American Muslims in the military play in protecting and serving our nation on the frontlines.

  • A Historic Win for Inclusion

    November 9, 2020
    MPAC congratulates President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris on their historic win! With African-American and immigrant communities comprising the majority of American Muslims, it is a significant milestone to have someone we can relate to in such a high position. This is a huge step toward a more inclusive America.

  • The Fight Continues

    November 4, 2020
    Election Day has passed without a clear victor at the top of the ticket. While our country manages an array of conflicting reports over what happened and what is to come, rest assured, the delay is the result of something for which we should be immensely proud: during an era of pandemic, protest, and political turmoil, we drove out a record level of voters.

  • There Is No Place For Violence in Civil Society

    October 29, 2020
    We offer our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the victims of the attack in Nice earlier today, as well as the recent attacks in Avignon and Paris, France.

  • We Will Not Be Dissuaded From Voting

    October 29, 2020
    A spread of disinformation campaigns are intended to suppress voter turnout by instilling doubt in the legitimacy of our electoral process. Oftentimes, disinformation tactics are intended to dissuade people from voting; the tacticians know just how powerful a politically engaged citizenry can be. Let’s use our power this November and put our best foot forward for what comes next: the harder work of working with government officials to achieve our community’s shared interests.
