Muslim Advocates is a national legal advocacy and educational organization that works on the frontlines of civil rights to guarantee freedom and justice for Americans of all faiths. Founded by lawyers, Muslim Advocates aims to ensure the concerns of American Muslims are heard by leaders at the highest levels of government.

Request Overview:

To address continuous threats to U.S. democracy, Muslim Advocates is focusing on strategic strengths to address the key areas they work in—racial and religious discrimination, anti-Muslim bigotry and strengthening the American Muslim community. In 2019, Muslim Advocates will deepen its legal advocacy, policy engagement, and public advocacy and education. Muslim Advocates directly represents clients in lawsuits challenging unconstitutional practices, and its growing legal team files amicus briefs in support of important litigation by our partners.
