Civil Rights

One of our core commitments as an organization is to uphold our Constitutional values, and preserve liberty, equality and justice for all. We work with a wide variety of public officials, community organizations and civil rights organizations to protect the civil rights of all Americans.

MPAC works with the Department of Justice's Civil Rights and Civil Liberties division to refer cases of hate crimes for prosecution. In 2007, the DOJ prosecuted and convicted a person in federal court for charges related to threats made to a Muslim woman colleague.  MPAC is also the only Muslim American organization represented at the Inter-Agency meeting hosted by the Department of Justice which brings together community organizations with the Department of Homeland Security, and the Treasury Department.  Among the key pieces of legislation that MPAC has worked to gain passage for as the Workplace Religious Freedom Act and the End Racial Profiling Act.
