Duration: January 1, 2021 - December 31, 2021

Organization Overview

MPower Change helps build community power and civic engagement to advocate for Muslims in the United States and to advance rights and justice for all in a pluralistic, welcoming nation.

Request Overview

MPower Change is a grassroots organizing and online mobilization arm for the wider American Muslim community through public education, digital engagement, and grassroots experience. MPower Change also plays an important role as a networking hub, linking Muslim communities and perspectives to multi-community coalitions and collaborations nationwide. On the heels of the 2020 elections, MPower Change will continue its work to lead the nonpartisan #MyMuslimVote civic engagement program with national and state-based partners through an ad hoc coalition co-founded by MPower Change called the Muslim Civic Engagement Table (MCET). MCET will prepare training materials and lead events, organize multilingual volunteer recruitment and coordination, and produce talking points for local and faith leaders. Alongside MPower Change’s on-the-ground work, they will continue to produce online media content and printed materials including t-shirts, signs, and posters.
